Definition of a Teacher / How to Paint Glass

Brown Jug & Tulips
12x16 oil on canvas
Another from this spring’s still life class with Laurel Daniel at AMOA/Laguna Gloria. My first attempt at glass and water. First I did it my way and it was a disaster. Scrape, scrape, scrape. Then I did it Laurel’s way and voila! She recommends first painting the stems and leaves without the glass and then going back, graying down what ever is below the water line a teensy bit and adding the vase and water. Simple, right?
