Glass on Mirrors - Two Works in Progress

Today in the Still Life class at the Kawartha Artists' Gallery and Studio our theme was Glass on Mirrors.

There were two distinct groupings and both were challenging subjects, especially when some of the glass was cut crystal and etched glass; and the others were transparent and reflected the colours from their surroundings.

Crystal Reflections I

The first one had a plain goblet, a blued glass with tiny bubbles inside the glass sides, a tall patterned green vase, a large cut crystal candy dish and a small etched glass bowl containing pieces of candy all of which was reflected on the mirror.

Half Full or Half Empty?

The second one had two wine glasses, a bevelled water pitcher which reflected the surrounding colours and a couple of bottles of wine, one was half full and both had some interesting colours showing through the liquid.

I will post each of these paintings at a later date one more work on them has been completed.
