Crystal Candy Dish - Complete

Here are the final stages to completion for Crystal Candy Dish which I am drawing with Prismacolor Pencils on Ampersand Pastel Board (5 x 7") and using Turpenoid Natural solvent to "paint" the piece.

So, in the following phase (continued from last week), I continue to develop the piece, glazing more layers over the background and at the same time, work to try to make the highlights in the glass "pop" forward.
In the following image, you can see where I have most of the detail of the glass worked out. I am also adding a lot more color into the foreground. All of this was "painted" over with solvent to dissolve the wax in the pencils and blend them together.
Here is the drawing as complete. As you can see, I warmed up the foreground to bring it forward and added a light blue to the background to push it back a bit. I also added some warmer color to the glass.

This painting is available for $50, plus shipping. Send me an e-mail if you are interested.
