water glass

My water glass painting was interesting because ... I started off with the headband coming out of the water glass, but halfway through the painting i turned the whole thing upside down. Then my painting ended up looking like the headband was bent inside of the glass. Therefore, I put the headband in the water glass and finished my painting from there. i considered the placement and view, but it changed halfway through, and i just went with it. i thought of the water as shapes, but in dark and lights colors. i mapped out the shapes and then tested and messed around with the colors. in order for it to look transparent, i used the same color scheme throughout the painting, and the areas within the painting are more blurry and smudged. whereas the areas on the outside of the glass and more crisp and have more deffinite shapes.
