Overview

"You will never look at glass, cut crystal or reflective surfaces the same way again." --Joyce Roletto Faulknor

All successful artists are keen observers. In this inspiring book, Joyce Roletto Faulknor shares with you her proven secrets for sharpening your senses and transforming your observations into striking interpretations of light's interaction with glass.

It's all in how you see the subject. Through 11 short exercises, Faulknor shows you how to begin painting the subject's shapes and values, working dark to light. If you are used to working traditionally, this concept may seem counterintuitive--but just follow along. Building luminosity one layer at a time, you'll capture the textures of light and glass with new resonance and realism.

Ten complete step-by-step demonstrations clearly illustrate how to capture the glossy texture of ice, the shining facets of crystal, the radiant hues of colored glass, and the flattened sheen of reflective surfaces. Try your hand at these fresh techniques, and watch your work begin to glow with unprecedented richness.
