Apricots & Goblets

Watercolor & gouache

I chose to paint this goblet because it was one of the new glasses that I bought recently. I got it from Pier 1, but it is similar in glass design as the purple goblets that I bought at the Home Collection in Centerville. And they have the distinct tiny bubbles in the glass if you look closely.

I like the contrast of the turquoise glass and the yellow apricots. The man-made glass and wood grain of the table complements the soft natural forms of nature and the soft sunlight of the morning. You can also see tree forms behind the window — very soft and kind of indistinct — that I painted in a chromium green.
