Clear glass study

Acrylic on canvas; study of clear glass. This demonsration was performed within a 20-25 minute time frame. The lesson was to see and paint the effects of clear glass against a solid backdrop. It’s all about values and keeping the initial structure simple. Close attention to an accurate drawing and a simplified value scale is all one needs to start. From there the subject can then be embellished with exagerated color to produce a more contemporary painting or worked further with local color and a more complex value range for a study in realism.
