"Reflections"

Started this as a value study using raw umber but quickly turned into full color as I got into the reflected surfaces.

Sweet relections. What surface did you put your objects on?

I've been carrying my turnip around since Tuesday. :)

Hi Susan,

This is so impressive. I'm always intrigued when someone paints glass with is reflective qualities. Not an easy thing to do, I've tried in a class or two.

You've done a marvelous job here.

Susan-
There is a remarkable visual dynamic to this piece. I especially like the use of compliments: the cool violet in the glass shadow with the warm yellow in the focal point; the crimson below the glass with the muted viridian inside. Lots of soft, lost edges. Really nice image.
