It's been a funny week some how, I started two paintings at the same time and I think I've come to the conclusion that I prefer just to concentrate on painting one picture at a time. I get into a zone when I'm painting, I just paint without consciously thinking too much, although I'm making decisions all the time as I go along. When I change to paint a second one it's like breaking the spell and I have to find my way into the other painting which is hard, and I don't like the switching back and forth.
Anyway this is a little glass jug I found at a flea market the other Saturday, I fell in love with the Art Deco shape so I bought it. I thought that I would perch it on the fruit box my hubby acquired for me, and the strawberry decided to keep it company and revel in it's own reflection!.
Carol DeMumbrum asked if she could see my process, I remembered to take pics to about 1/2 way through then forgot all about taking more so here are a few to give you a bit of an idea.
I start with a rough sketch , then block in with thinned down paint. Next stage another layer of thicker paint, and then the final layer finishing with highlights.
