90 From Life: Day 6 – Water Glass II
This is day 6 of my 90-day challenge to produce one new painting from life each day.
I felt yesterday’s painting fell short of my expectations, so today I wanted to produce a stronger piece. There’s always room for improvement, but this certainly satisfied that need.
The model was another glass of water. I wanted to keep it in the similar space as yesterday’s, but didn’t want to repeat myself outright.
I didn’t come across any major stumbling blocks with this, so there isn’t much I’d do differently.
Interestingly, I did find myself editing out a lot of detail on the glass. There are etched floral patterns running all along the sides – I just didn’t see these as contributing to the strength of the painting, and would possibly distract from the clarity of the design.
Here’s a video where I show the model I worked from, and discuss the outcome of the painting:
