The Wasp Jar - in progress
9 x 12 oil
I've added more layers to this painting. Its slow going when I add thin layer over layer and these layers need a day or two to dry before the next is applied.
I continue to refine and have it pretty much where I want it in terms of form now - a tweak here and there will bring the bottle into form. Detail comes next and adding the minute crinkles in the wax paper takes a lot of observation and careful paint placement. However, the obsessive/compulsive part of me loves doing just that kind of inspection and detail placement.
There's a long way to go yet. The bottle needs glazes to bring out the rich brown tones that it has and that means more of the waiting game. And the wax paper? Well, one crease at a time...
