Milk Glass

On January 8, 09 I posted this value study which focused on whites and translucent objects. I recently went back and made another painting with similar shapes but used full color. The biggest challenge for me was showing the gentle colors in the vase as well as the subtle translucent milk glass. I thought the tulips would be the problem but that went surprisingly easy.

The translucence really shows up in the white highlights -- especially the top edge. I like the slightly hazy quality of the glass, compared to the flower, so we know you weren't just doing a 'gauzy' image.
