Crystal Bowl Revisited

Susan Roper graciously gave me permission to use her tutorial for my Thursday painting group. The tutorial instructs the process of  how to paint the crystal bowl through  lifting the paint.  The picture of the subject  - the bowl- was provided originally to the Watercolor Workshop by member Vicki Green.  It was a beautiful photograph. I originally painted the bowl in sepia for the March Watercolor Workshop project and this is my second attemp at trying to capture the shadows and reflections.  This time I used alizarin crimson.

Barbra Joan...I have shown your cards to everyone - and they all love them! I am so glad you are enjoying my ATC's, athough, I never considered them worthy of framing.:) Thanks for visiting my blog.
