As clear as glass

Art, Dr. Ph. Martin's Radiant Concentrated Watercolor, Illustration, Watercolor, Watercolors


Dr. Ph. Martin’s watercolors are the bomb. I just haven’t figured out how to use them successfully for me – until tonight. They are strong-willed, sometimes opaque and wonky to me. However, I love them and am determined to utilize this beautiful gift.

Because of their opacity, I asked myself if glass would be the perfect challenge. How do I paint, illustrate and keep the glass clear?

Having had a good experience balancing cups recently, I decided to try water glasses from the kitchen. Good?

I’m pleased.

  1. I still have to play with the ph martens that I recently got because of you!! I was under the impression tho that they were very bright and intense. You have managed to get a very light transparent result here….glasses look great!


  2. I love those PH Martins, I don’t think you can beat them for a punch of colour. Also, really love your new crisp style you’ve adapted since I’ve had a break. Wonderful sense of form on these cups!


    1. Yes I do too, but they make me miserable when it goes south. Thanks for noticing and hope I can maintain direction. I need to investigate why I haven’t heard from you and maybe check my settings.
