Where does the time go?! This week I was preparing for book club at my house, as well as sketching and painting.
I am posting to a great weekly website called Paint Party Friday.
A few looks into this last week.
This is the start of an upside-down-blind-contour sketch of a martini glass.
Here I added a couple of lines to complete the sketch after looking at it.
Both were along the right edge of the base and stem of the glass. The sketch is done with white school chalk.
I started painting the tabletop and the glass. I wanted to do streamers, like a celebration, but I changed it in the next step.
Here is stage 4. I still have some work to do on it. I want to change the values on the table top so that it doesn't look flat, and I want to add more paint in the same value as the background. It looks too skimpy right now.
Here is the black and white version of the original reference from my workshop with Ardith Goodwin called "Expressive Sketching for Painters"
Have a good week,
