Antique, green glass, salt shaker. Salt shaker drawing is 2x6 inch. on 9x12 Strathmore drawing paper. HB graphite pencil.
Beautiful job, Catherine. The glass and even the mishapen top is perfect!
OK, Catherine, where is the pepper shaker? Very nice drawing.
Thank you jcurry! I vowed that this year I would learn how to paint glass no matter how hard it was.
LOL Charlie, thank you. The other green glass shaker is the same color green and also has a beat up tin lid. The difference is that it is square with a checked design instead of simple vertical lines. If I did that one too and did a good enough job on it I could frame the two in the same frame and tuck it away for a Christmas gift. You're a genius Charlie!
nice glass work, and great detail.
Catherine, I don't know about that genius part. Haha
Thank you curtis! Best tools I've found have been the Papermate Tuff Stuff eraser stick and then I sharpen the end of the eraser stick to a fine edge using a Staedtler Mars sandpaper lead pointer that cost me a whopping $0.89 plus tax at Blicks Art. It's amazing the detail work you are able to do using those two tools together.
Catherine, so glad you posted this! A wonderful portrayal of a tough subject - glass with rippled surfaces and ellipses.
It's amazing what you can create with just a graphite pencil. It's a beautiful drawing.
Thank you Alex and richard! RAUL those old green glass shakers do have a certain something about them don't they?
You have succeeded in giving it that glassy feel. Good job C Brown!
