Photoshop tips for artists: Lossy vs. Lossless files
oooh la la...love those shadows too. Very nice work! R.Very nice.
Great piece, I love those shadows . Your doing really good in no time you will start pleasing yourself with these glass bottles
love the shadows on the wall and the haze of blue in the clear bottle.
Thank you, Cathyann, Dominque, and Kim! I was intrigued by those shadows, too. The upper one is from a plant hanging way up and out of the picture. I was pleased at how enjoyable it was to paint the bottles, and I do like how the blue was throwing its color around. I'm looking forward to doing more bottles.
Dang R. I say it for the third time... the shadows are awesome! so hard not to overdue them. Ya did 'em just right. As for Diana's tummy tuck, I think it was a subconscious wish on my part *sigh*
Hi R.,This is just fantastic. Your fear of glass was hard to understand when you first announced it,but now? I think it's fair to say there's another fear vanquished.Take care,Barbara
wow this is so vivid! love that blue glasswork. Love the clearity in your images. Very nicely done!!! Fun to look at.
Awww....Sheila, Doug, Barbara, and Sandra, too...what would would I do without my bestest fan club?? Thanks, you've made my weekend!
Truly impressive work. The attention to the lighting and shadows as well as the reflections of tones and colors while still keeping it simple and almost minimalist is fantastic.You have a new fan!
This is amazing as usual. It's always great to check in to see what you're up to, and even with a sore shoulder you get a lot done! Hope you're feeling better.
I love your colours and composition.Your fear of painting glass I understand all too well and each time I start a glass painting I wonder am I crazy for subjecting myself to it! You have done a great job and it will only get better and better, and once you are a 'glass master' you'll have to find something else to keep you edgy ;-)
Fear, Whoa!Looks nothing like a fear. Awesome painting. I always love the intense colors in your paintings. Do you use them off the tube as is? Lovely image.
Gorgeous piece R. At first I thought the second set of shadows was the result of another light source. They balance the composition so beautifully...great call adding them. Love the glass too, beautiful job.
Beautiful, R. Can't see why you'd have fear of painting anything. You see so clearly, and paint so beautifully.
Wow! the reflections and glow and shadows. Great!
Thank you, Gary! Always great to have a new fan. Love your photography.Thanks Cheryl, always nice to hear from you!Thank you Paul, I appreciate your camaraderie and you are so right about the craziness!Thank you Nithya! I do like intense colors, but I rarely use anything right out of the tube.Vern, always nice to hear from you. Thank you for the compliments. I was pleased with this composition.Thank you Liz, maybe a little fear helps us stay on our toes?Thanks, Christine!
Very nicely done. And no oranges. Love it
Thanks for the visit to my blog and your nice comment! Am so impressed in seeing your paintings...such attention to detail, great colors and precision in your drawing abilities! Great work!
i like how you worked the blue glass bottle. beautiful!!!i am working on a painting of orchids. and it is just about killing me. procrastinating right now with blogging rather than painting. :)
I continue to be amazed with your work.... It is really quite amazing. How you manage to get it so realistic looking is beyond me.... I'm trying to figure out those lovely shadows... Was there a separate set of flowers somewhere???? ... There's no second light source .... Anyhooooooo once again.... BEAUTIFUL!!!
Really nice, R.. I LOVE the cast shadows.
Beautiful, an amazing piece.The blue glass is great, aRt!
The shadows, the shadows, the shadows...I love them! I really like the blue glass too.
Those shadows are beautiful in this painting. And seeing the light filter through parts of the shadow really helps add to the reflective quality of the glass.
Thank you, Gary, and voila! No oranges (and they said it couldn't be done!)Thank you Ann, I enjoy your work as well.drollgirl, looking forward to seeing your orchids! Enjoying the clever writing on your blog.Marian, thank you! There is a mystery shadow there, yes; from a pothos hanging out of the picture plane...it added so much I couldn't leave it out.Thanks, Edward, Dana and Kim, for enjoying the shadows, and Irit for liking the blue glass!
I love the intense blue on the bottle. Beautiful work, as always.
