Single Marble

Last weekend I bought myself a couple bags of marbles and spent over an hour photographing those little glass spheres in the morning sun. I not only had an urge to paint glass, but to also use my own photograph to paint from.

This little painting is one of many studies for a larger oil painting of a marble. When I'm done all the other oil paintings currently in various stages of completeness... I'll be starting a marble.
