Inspiration/desire/

Light, transparency, translucency, how to get this magic transposed into paint on paper is something that I’m trying to turn my brain around. If there is a bit of a pattern I’m a goner.

I went to the Yale Art museum this week to see the Whistler show, worth the trip, when my computer comes back from Tekserve I’ll post a more complete report  here is a link to the show

while I was wandering about the classical sculpture my attention was completely taken up by the light coming through the wavy glass  upstairs there were some classic Flemmish paintings of food and drink, they managed to completely indicate and describe a glass vessel using only lights and darks, no mid-values. I’m trying this at home .
