EDM #43: Draw something china or ceramic

A little macabre, I know.

My approach to glass and ceramics is to pay close attention to highlights and refections. I also wanted to capture the difference in texture between the velvet lining and the glass of the eye.  I painted the box with watercolors, using ochre and grey with a little bit of white gouache, then let it dry, and did the eyeball all in gouache. Oh, and I didn’t do any actual drawing, just used two sable brushes, #7 & 4.

Here’s looking at you, kid.

  1. The texture is excellent. The lining of the lid box has the look of old silk. The eyeball isn’t bad either.;) Thanks for the always awesome things you share.
