Lemon coke bottle

Lemons are difficult to paint for me, I think because darkening yellows with paint is pretty tricky. On the other hand, I really enjoy painting glass things. The key, I think, is to focus on the shapes and colors and paint those, and the bottle will just emerge. It's no different from painting anything else, really, but glass forces me to be more observant and careful.

Tomorrow, I head off to Vancouver BC, to go on a painting cruise! It's a combination 1 week cruise and painting workshop. I will be taking a workshop with Larry Seiler, whose work I always liked seeing on wetcanvas. I'm quite excited, and as usual, not quite packed!
