Crystal in Sepia II
For those who have followed my blog for awhile, you will recognize this as a sepia crystal bowl I did in either 2008 or 2009. I did this as a demo painting for my watercolor class yesterday. I usually don't like to paint a painting more than once, usually the excitement is spent the first time. But, I enjoyed this one as much the second time as the first. Maybe that is because it was such fun seeing the expressions on the faces of the students when I lifted that bowl shape out of the brown background. They had an equal amount of fun and wonder when they did their own paintings of this bowl. It was a good day!
I wish to thank Vicki once again for being such a good friend that she did a variety of set-ups using this bowl, photographed them and sent them to me to choose the preferred reference photo. All of this just because I asked her pretty please! ! What a friend!
