This was a fun two afternoon painting. Below are the steps in the work in progress and photo of the setup. This was painted about a year after my mother passed away. It’s poignant to be painting some of her special glassware.
I tried and tried to paint the beautiful camellias that grow on a large bush outside my studio window. After the third attempt (above) I was too cranky to keep trying and failing to capture them. I decided to give up on them until next year’s bloom when I will try again. Below are the previous attempts.
