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.
