Glass Study

I've been sketching almost daily but a bit behind in posting to my blog (so what's new you ask?? lol). 
This first is practicing glass in graphite.  Worked in the Handbook using only a mechanical pencil 05 (Twist Erase) and tortillion to blend/shade.

Working in pencil helps me gain a little confidence figuring if I can do it in graphite, I can feel better about trying in color.



After working the pencil sketch, I decided to try my hand at a small glass vase using pen and ink plus watercolor.  Sketched in the S&B Alpha journal using a Micron for the black ink work and Stabilo pen for the dark pink.  Opera and Quin Rose were used to paint the carnations.
