    do you have any suggestions for painting glass? Im doing my first painting of a wine glass and I’m not sure if it’s that I’m intimidated by doing it, or I’m just not looking at it right.

    So what is this tried and true method for photographing paintings on canvas?

    Well, if the actual painting does look better than this photo, it must be amazing. Great work!

    Hi Julie. WELL… in 100 words or less… glass can both reflect and refract light – in other words it can be both a mirror and a prism, the latter can especially be observed around highlights, where some very intense colors can be present. Also, glass is almost never perfectly clear, but has some tint to it, generally a pale green or blue. This is mostly noticable when the glass is set against a dark background. A few years ago I did try to familiarize myself with some of the basic concepts of optics, and that does seem to have been helpful when painting glass amongst other things.

    Other than that, it’s the same principle as painting anything else: I try to observe very carefully and then paint exactly what I see.

    More than 100 words, right?

    Hi Josephine – it requires some explanation and probably a few images to do it justice; I will try to write it up as a separate post when I get some time to do so.

    Just beautiful, as always. I love how the lemon is distorted by the glass. You paint what you see, and you see more than the average person!
