#6 Corkscrew - Sheryl Hawkins


I have been painting a lot recently, but don't want to post too many at one time, so I am pacing myself on the posting! This is one of my latest- I have been practicing painting reflections on metal and glass. I am hoping that the more I practice them, the easier they will become to paint. The difficulty with the corkscrew wasn't even the reflections, it was the crazy perspective problems!

You did a great job with the metallic reflections. Yes, the perspective a flat-tish subject can be brutal, but you did do a very nice job on it. Keep at it and you'll achieve your goal!

Your metal looks so real and shiny. Love the name on the cork also. Great eye for detail.

You have got the perspective and reflections really well! What colour did you use for the metal....it seems so accurate!

...you really captured the feel of metal...the mechanics are convincing too--really cool piece!

Thank you, everyone- I had fun painting this one!

Brinda- I used Payne's Gray for the metal- I love the color, but it does stain and is murder to lighten if you are unhappy with it!
