Yupo Paper and beautiful glass

Flatter color

This week we were sketching at Michealides Glass Studio in Clinton.  You can see there were many beautiful pieces of glass to sketch in the windows.  What better place for glass to show beautifully!

This piece to the left was sketched with a brush on watercolor paper in my sketchbook.  Extra color was added after the first pass to make create the form.

The sketch below was sketched with the brush onto Yupo (a plastic paper).  The colors retain their pure vibrancy.  To add highlights you carefully carve them out with a damp brush.

Intense vibration of color

What a treat!  This was my kind of creative gardening, a beautiful house, and art in the garden.  Nancy is a delight, has 3 gorgeous Bernes...
