Hello fellow artistas! Today you get a real time demo and instruction on painting glass in a pair of glasses. It's not a difficult feat, but it does take care and a tender touch.
I like to start with a dry painting for this paint layer because it makes blending the glass sheen a thousand times easier when you don't have to worry about it mixing with the skin or surrounding area.
I only used Titanium White for the shine, and added some Payne's Grey for the earrings (and the same with my "oopsie" you'll see at the end of the video). I prefer Payne's Grey to any kind of black because I feel like it has a richness that regular black lacks; I'll go into more detail about their differences in a later blog post. I also used my linseed oil and turpenoid to help thin out the translucent white area.
As always, feel free to leave feedback for me and if you liked it, give me a subscribe on YouTube too so I know folks are getting something out of my vids. Thanks friends!
