- You have 5-6 lines to create the essential patterns of a glass.
- Leave open areas..paint the light.
- The negative shapes hold everything together like a glove.
- Your reflections always want to reflect the outward shapes and the inside pattern.
- Change the character of the edges as you paint your shapes.
- Where are your patterns? Do they they touch, butt, overlap or form new shapes? I think I took more notes than painted...
Peter Yesis has a fine command of the quotidienne (everyday) object, like this pickle jar and his painting stories are always amusing. I'm going to really look at glass in Paris, and who know's..that's all you may see from me for a while... Qui sait? :)
