A mason jar

Here's a start to a mason jar study. I'm trying something a little different on this one. I'm going with acrylic for the underpainting so I can work a little quicker. Most was done in thin washes, but I also used an airbrush to smooth transitions out at the end. I may have gone a little dark with the second image.. but I think it will still work out ok. The tones throughout the jar really are very dark, with just a few highlights and lighter areas on the top and subtle transitions around the lettering. I will stop at the first stage next time as I think it's all I'll need to figure out the rest in oil. Time to switch to oils!

Any C&C welcome.

cheers, Mike

A first pass in oil. I'm going to try and go limited Zorn palette in this to just keep it easy.

Thanks you Kay! Documenting the process is a recent thing for me. I'm finding it helpful in nailing down exactly what works and when, and what to omit sometimes. For instance the next one.. I don't think I'll bother will the full acrylic wash block in. Going straight to oil after everything in lineated makes more sense!
