April Art Challenge

by Ria Hills

This month's challenge is to paint glass. It can be a drinking glass, a vase, a window.
Painting the reflection in glass can be quite a challenge if you try to capture every detail (not that there's anything wrong with being challenged). I find it's always best to focus on the shapes. Move your glass around in the light to get the reflections that appeal to you.



Hint: If there's too much going on in the way of reflection's try placing your glass in front of a solid background.  Happy painting!

We'd love to hear from you whether it's praise or critique. Sometimes it's a simple comment that keeps us going as painters!
