"Red Glass Vase," 5x7, oil on canvas board

Connie Kleinjans: Original oil painting, Red Glass Vase, 5x7This was fun. I started it last night and it wasn't rolling, but today I started mucking around with the shadow. I use water-soluble oils, and I was almost using watercolor techniques, which was really interesting. Once I dug in on the body of the vase, I found I got the glow I wanted by scrubbing out areas with a paper towel rolled into a point.
