Nine marbles by fredasurgenor Nine marbles by fredasurgenor
Here we are, at last, the marbles painting.
It's Windsor and Newton transparent watercolours on stretched Arches 300gsm medium watercolour paper.

And it was great fun to do.

Thanks for all the kind comments, watches and faves. Most appreciated.

Simply incredible! Goodness knows I wouldn't even attempt a subject as difficult as this. Your attention to detail is just unbeleivable, especially in your works with reflections and glass such as in this one. Once again, stunning piece!

No, I have never heard of him before. Thank you for bringing him to my attention. I love his work. He has obviously done extremely well in his line of work, judging by the collections that hold his work.

Incredible...love your choice of subject matter here. These must be old marbles. The newer ones are not this pretty. These are very fascinating ones. I love the reflection in the silver (I believe that is sterling). WOW!!!!!!!

you use tubed watercolour or from panel?
Reply
:iconfredasurgenor:
fredasurgenor Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
I use tubes. I originally had pans but as they got used up, I squeezed the tubed paint into them and use it from the pans. It is far more economical that way.
