Glass is a study of contradictions. Both durable and terribly fragile at the same time, it’s often able to withstand heat but shatters when dropped; it can be perfectly clear and see-through, or cloudy and opaque, blocking out the light and distorting reflections. Is it any wonder, then, that we love painting and drawing glass? After all, it is an art unto itself.

But learning how to paint glass can be tricky for all the same reasons we love it. Glass vases and bowls cast off reflections and distortions, making color spill out and reflect onto surfaces, and throw the light in different directions, especially curved or cut glass. And creating depth is especially challenging when you can see right through it!

But like glass itself, all it takes is a bit of know-how and careful handling, and you can incorporate stunning glass into your art with the right tricks and painting techniques.

In Colored Pencil Techniques: Glass, Janie Gildow demonstrates how to paint realistic glass in a series of mini demonstrations that cover a variety of glass characteristics and shares lessons on layering, transparency, values, application and more for success with colored pencil!

    It is strange to see that people remain indifferent to the problem. Perhaps this is due to the global economic crisis. Although, of course, it's hard to say unequivocally. I myself thought for a few minutes before writing these few words. Who is to blame and what to do is our eternal problem, to my mind Dostoevsky spoke about this.
