I was rummaging around in the cold room, sorting out what alcoholic delights were there and thought a little sketch of some of the bottles with the light shining through them would make an interesting compositions. this is a tiny piece 2.5 x 3.5 and may well translate into a large painting, but that may have to wait a little longer.
The intricasies of painting glass intrigue me. The subtle colour and value changes as well as hard and soft edges that give glass its unique appearance are all very acheiveable if you take your time and look at it like a puzzle. Putting one piece in at a time and suddenly you have glass!
