CATCH THE LIGHT...365 Days of Drawing

I am fascinated by the effect of light on most things but especially on shiny sparkly things like glass and satin. This is often a nuisance when I am trying to get in and out of a daily drawing challenge fast or certainly within the half hour daily commitment to draw.

This drawing, with wash, took me longer than that.. I could have gone on for ever but decided I have a life!

It reminded what fun abstract painters must have. This prism was all about little shapes and values bumping next to each other.

Johanna, you've captured the mathematical, prismatic and multifaceted beauty of this glass object. Keep up the fine work!

Gwen Bell said... beautiful! I can't even imagine how challenging this was.

Thank you all. I had been putting off doing this one for quite sometime. Glad I beat it down.
