Oil on Raymar Panel
Carrie is an amazing watercolorist. She paints still life pieces using glass bottles and crystal glasses in her compositions. She is able to capture light masterfully. Her work is not to be missed. Visit her blog to see what she is up to. She often posts works in progress and it is fascinating to follow her as she brings the painting to life.
When I first wrote to Carrie to ask if I could paint her "mug" I thought I was asking for a picture of her face to paint from...Carrie read it as a coffee mug and sent this picture!!! When I better explained what I was looking for she laughed and said "that is the difference between a still life artist and a portrait artist!"
Leslie Saeta's challenge is going strong. check out her blog to see all the beautiful paintings.
