Session #399, Work #381

I’m still having fun with glass on white, and I added a bit of black today for interest, plus some nice colored Rum. The values here are so subtle that I have to really focus on every stroke of paint I put down. I also have to constantly have a clear awareness of the overall values within the still life. If I get too many values too high then I will loose the super white glare on the glasses into the background. Needless to say it is a bit of a challenge.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
