Trying to create transparency

still life with bg

Every once in a while, I try to draw something other than a face. Here’s tonights attempt, the brush holder on my desk. I have been shying away from attempting transparent objects and this time I decided to go for it. It certainly is a step in the right direction.

Added the real background using layers. It’s a bit too cluttered. Somewhere between the two would have applealed to me more.
