The goal of this painting lesson is to paint glass containers on a window sill, using back-lighting as the light source. 

This design will teach how to work with a limited palette of color. This is a good design that will help you learn to paint simple metal textures (lids of the jam bottles) Learn how to create a glass container that is filled with translucent jam.  

The acrylic painting techniques used are: Wet in wet blending, glazing, and the addition of the 'light' details will provide the student with a strong lesson.

History of the painting by the artist:

The Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada is home for me. This fruit growing valley is an oasis nestled between the mountains. Fruit orchards stretch across the landscape show off their neatly

manicured rows of cherry, peach, pear and plum trees. Spring and summer bring a bounty of blossoms. In the fall, fruit harvests fill the kitchens of every home in the area. As you can imagine, canning and making jams and jellies are a natural pastime for many of us who enjoy preserving for the long winters. 

One bright summer day a few years ago, I had just finished canning my last batch of cherry jam when the image above caught my eye. I had placed jars of jelly on the kitchen window sill to cool. The sun was

brilliant that day and seemed to light up the entire room as it streamed into my kitchen. There before me

was the striking contrast of reds from the cherries and jellies and the brilliant white bowl and window sill.

Who could resist? Not I.

    Since I just received the pattern yesterday I have not had a chance to paint it, but really am looking forward to it. Have read the instructions and they are very informative.
