Clear Beer Glass and Yellow Pitcher


It's clear glass month at the ASL remote class. Clear glass is made up of lost edges, reflections and refractions. These can be seen clearly on a white background. Refractions are the objects behind the glass which show the shape of the glass. Reflection is what is shown on the glass from a nearby object. The challenging part is color changes that are very subtle. They aren't necessarily value or saturation, but small temperature changes. 

Clear Glass Plate and Orange

This painting is my copy of Karen O'Neil's demonstration. I began  thinking about clear glass watching this painting take shape. Painting glass is abstract and difficult because there isn't much to see. It's not about painting the glass, but what's around and behind it.
