Carnival Glass- A work in progress

My style of work is realism. I don’t concentrate on photorealism, but I make my subjects look realistic. I found  Art Spectrum Colorfix, which happens to be a pastel paper that comes in a variety of shades. I was hesitant about it at first, but soon fell in love with it. This is what I am working on at the present. This one is 16 x 22″ on Brown Colorfix paper.

 Step 1  

STEP 1 – I always make a very detailed line drawing before I start with any of my CP pieces. I usually do it with Col-erase pencils or transfer sheets.

 Step 2 

STEP 2 –  I have started adding and blocking the colors. I am working on this upside down, since it makes easier my job of blocking out the reflections in the glass.

Step 3 

STEP 3 – More colors being added. This piece has a lot of color for a plain glass of water 🙂

  Step 4

STEP 4 – This is where I am now, after several hours of work. The background is screaming for some attention, which I will be giving it soon!
