I was able to fix the bottom of my glass in the glass drawing, although I almost rubbed out the background and it came back slightly darker. The best part is that I know why it looked like it did. I should have worked from the edge of the pencil mark on the left side, in toward the stem instead of on the outside.

Ginger,

That's the best part of learning - knowing what went wrong.

I am amazed at how much I have learned from making mistakes!  They are the best teachers.

I would like to redo this glass and use in a frame. I was wondering if Nolan has a drawing of another glass or set of glasses that would make a great drawing companion to frame?

How about a wine bottle and glass as a companion piece?  Nolan has an oil painting in a still life lesson with a wine bottle and a different shaped glass (How to paint glass objects).  You' could use the outline of the objects then do them in pencil.  Just print the reference photo in grayscale to give you the tonal values.

Nolan, would this be a way to do it?  Please correct me if I gave a bad suggestion.

Hi Mea and Val,

Sorry it took so long for me to get back in here. If I had my way, I would be here all the time. That is a great idea with the wine bottle and different glass. Maybe I could figure out all the lighting to turn it into a pencil drawing. I am sad that I will be away from the art for just a few weeks, hopefully can sneak some time in though. I am delighted that I will be helping my daughter with her one new baby and her 18 month old so she can finish her clinical work and graduate by the end of the year. I will be watching video's when I can and will take my drawing tools with me. I will need to save the painting for when I get back. I am almost finished with the rose so I will post that by tomorrow. I will upload a new picture of my glass bottom also. Bye for now.

That's smart of you to bring your drawing tools.

Have fun playing grandma.

Good work.

the base shape is great now :clap: :clap: :clap:
you can even the background tonal value by tapping with the rounded end of your kneaded eraser O0

Why not pose your own set of glasses / companion glass then you will have an original drawing :heeha:

I will work on the background tonal value. I will also see what kind of lighting and settings I can create to work on an original drawing.  :clap:
