Re: PAL (Paint-a Long): Painting glass and Metal

old_hobbyist...wow, this is gonna be great!! Love the purples in the one you did of two glasses!!

Pam....Maureen had a tip at the beginning:" TIP – if you are making a very basic, symmetrical shape, draw a central vertical, draw one side of the shape, trace it, reverse it and fit the shape down the vertical to complete the shape.
OR, make a template of the first side by cutting from scrap paper, reverse it, draw round it to complete the whole shape ……… and that’s all you need to start. "

I have traced, tho' I'm trying to learn to draw stuff... not always successful...as you could see if you follow all the ellipse mistakes I made
I you look at old_hobbyist's glass....he gridded it, which I do sometimes as well, but on the pc
