I have been avoiding you though... so I'll apologize for that. But really, you're a glass jar for jeebus' sake... glass is hard to paint! last night as i was working on the Pilot painting... I had an open pallette and some wet paints and decided to give it another shot.
To be honest, I don't know why I continue to use my wall as a background...that yellowish gold greenish mustardy color is probably the hardest to get right. Sometimes I paint it too yellow, sometimes it comes out too green, too dark... it is not a very forgiving color. and to boot, i'm using a blue glass jar you can see through. i am a glutton for punishment.
here are the last 2 progress shots..the second one is the lastest. all i have to do now is get the shadow areas completed (easier said than done).
