Champagne Glass

The subject of this lesson couldn’t be any more different to what you normally see me paint and so requires a total reprogramming of mind! I wanted to move away (temporarily) from subjects that are in the large part technique based (like Landscapes) and get back to basics, the simple application of flat colour, no complex mixing and no invention.

This un-complicated picture is perfect for the intermediate artist and a good gentle test for the beginner. A steady hand and good brush control is the difference between make or break with this one. I encourage you to study the sketching diagram and make sure the proportions are correct to achieve the best result. Good luck and I look forward to seeing how you get on.

Best of luck,
Michael
