It is the hardest thing to draw something transparent!  This is an antique cut glass parfum bottle that I had.  I used pencil, thinking that it would be easier to get that see-through effect...I don't think that it was too successful.  I did love drawing the shape, however.  I find that nature is very forgiving, with no real hard edges and exacting measurements. Graphic items are much harder, and force you to look harder, double check everything, and measure!  I will continue to try to figure out perspective.  And I have learned that the mind plays tricks on only THINK you know what you are really seeing!
