Clearly Unique

8x10 oil on gessoed Masonite

Thanks to all for saving their wine bottles for me, not that I don't have a few myself... :). Love that glass of wine every evening. 

 This series of painting wine bottles is great for my color mixing, value study and composition decisions.  I began much looser with this one and then tightened up as I added the details.  As far as drawing, getting the wine bottle correctly drawn was the most challenging.  When I tried this a year ago, I ended up with what looked like beer bottles.
