Liesel Lund teaches a workshop hosted at Daniel Smith Seattle that runs for months and has a different topic every week.  I enrolled in this week’s session on Water and Glass Reflections.  I was most interested in water reflections.  But the session ended up to be entirely glass reflections.  She asked us to bring a vase and she brought flowers.  So I sketched flowers in a vase…. not my usual subject.

First study.  No lines.

I moved the vase a bit and decided to use ink lines. I like this one much better. Obviously, I’m more comfortable with lines.  It might also be that what I learned in the first contributed to the second being better.

    I think the ink adds a lot to the second sketch. You did well with the glass vase in both.

    They’re each nice in different ways, but I actually prefer the first — the paint has a freshness that’s really lovely. Reflections on any surface are really challenging!
