A Simple Glass Jar


 It’s these challenges that keep me trying. This was a quick attempt at sketching glass.  Obviously it needs work but I wasn’t going so much for realism or a finished painting; I hoped to render a shape and capture the light. 

I touched on some elements and did get some transparent effects but I resorted to sketching an outline of the shape which I didn’t want to do.  Also, there wasn’t a bit of blue in the jar which I put in because I wasn’t taking the time I needed. 

Sometimes the simplest objects are not so simple.

    1. I thought if I toned the background I’d have to carry it through the glass but thinking about it I guess it wouldn’t come through everywhere. If colour was placed carefully to reserve the white that might do the trick. Thanks Graham!
