What you need:

Albrecht Dürer Magnus in light ultramarine 140, helioblue-reddish 151, warm grey II 271 and warm grey V 274, Water Brush, Watercolour paper with fine surface in DIN A4 or DIN A5


Step 1

Place a half-filled glass of water before you on the table. A real object will make it easier for you to grasp proportions and shading (you can also use a photo). In order to describe the glass more successfully, first draw a rectangle on the watercolour paper with Warm Gray II 271 in delicate strokes. In the box, draw the outline of the water glass in warm grey V 274. Draw ellipses for the top opening of the glass and the bottom. Enhance certain parts with warm grey V 274, helioblue-reddish 151 and light ultramarine 140, but not too strongly so that no unwanted lines remain when blending later.

Step 2

Precisely observe the glass placed in front of you and draw reflections, light and shadows with warm grey V col. 274 helioblue-reddish col. 151 and light ultramarine col. 140, in order to work out the plasticity of the glass and the water. Leave out very light / white spots.

Step 3

Now blend the pigments with the water brush. The brush tip should not be too wet so that the outline of the water glass remains visible.
