No. 36. Through the Dark Glassy

I took the shapes of little bottles that I've painted before in various studies and drew them from memory in dark lines without reference to the real thing. I then painted in between the lines in cadmium red, leaf green and cadmium yellows and oranges. I also layered a tinted household varnish over the whole composition, pointed in the highlights and once again layered over more of the varnish. More learning while playing!

Thanks for your comment, Anonymous. Did you know that I've moved my blog over to ? I no longer post to this one. The new blog is based on Wordpress which has given me more latitude for design and content. Do drop by. Best regards, Kevin
