This is some glass we used for Watercolor Painting class last Thursday at The Left Bank Studio. First we used Winsor & Newton art masking fluid where the reflections are. The painting in the photo has five layers of watercolor paint, drying in between layers.

The lines on the table are made with masking tape to start working with perspective so that there is depth in your painting. Working with Paul Jackson I noticed that if you can have a path of light or movement through the glass, it’s more inviting and pulls the viewer in.

We’ll be working more with perspective at this week’s Watercolor Painting class (perspective in still life) and Drawing & Composition class (perspective in landscape).
