"Peering Pears" --- SOLD

I love painting glass. I especially like it when I can show how things get distorted behind it. And this one was especially fun with the water at the bottom. The background color, especially from this side-on view, is generally slightly darker when viewed through the glass. It gets more complicated when you get to the water. Glass can look so boring until you paint in the highlights. Then suddenly - bam - it looks like glass.

You are so right! Isn't it just fascinating how one small brush stroke of color can make an object evolve.

Great brushwork. Very crisp, you make it look easy, but we know that is very hard to do. Less is always more. Beautiful
