Amazing. How do you do it. You know I tried painting the bottle set up and failed miserably.....;-) just cannot compare to yours
Oil paints listen to you better than they listen to me...nice work
:clap:

Capturing the look of glass seems to be a mystery that you have solved....Bravo!

yes these are wonderful...and it seems that gavin passed the brick baton to you;) i wanted a wee bit more abstractedness in this...but you know that is me not you...what you do is always exquisite...

If this is from an obeservation, look closer at the bottles. No matter how bright it may be outside the window, there should be some reflection of the interior (maybe of you)...however, faint. This will bring the focus back into the viewer.

I like it so far! Keep working on it!

an artificial alignment of refractive vessels channelling light and color right to the heart.
totally justified.
very well done.
and your duelling portraits - HA!

"glass class"

Diana: And I was so looking forward to how you would handle the bottles, with that loose brush work of yours. I appreciate your kind feedback!

pero lane: I love working with the transparencies and translucencies. Thank-you.

Pam: Glad this finished well on your palette ;O)

Ren: Gavin and I decided we are "bottle brothers" a good while back :O)). I DID take a close-up of the abstract surfaces for you, but decided it wasn't quite interesting enough to post.

angelmakerla: I think I'm done with this! The interior was quite a bit darker; and the bottle surfaces really had nothing of me or the interior on them. But, good point.

jerry: HA! Thanks!

ginia: Much obliged, sweetie :O))<
