still life with bottles
This one needs more work really, but I'm losing interest, and I don't want to muck up what there is, so I'm putting it away for a later look. If I stand back far enough, I like it.;)

The scan has cut off the edges a little.

Sepia pigmented ink, white gouache, on mi tientes pastel paper. Brush and dip pen.

It's lovely Chris..... I really like the combination of paper colour, Sepia and the gouache. They give a lovely depth and warmth to your pictures. The reflections are stunning as usual and you can almost feel the softness of the material. Great job:clap: :clap: :cat:

Wow Chris, it's really very good! I love the bottles reflections and the darks you have obtained. You are getting better and better with the sepia ink and gouache, I told you before but I have to repeat it.

WOW! I don't think I you need to work on anything.

Just sepia? Great form in the bottles, I love this as-is. Even my sweetie peeking over my shoulder was impressed!

Thanks everyone!

If I was the kinda boy who blushed easily, I'd be blushing right now. ;)

Hmmm, maybe I am....


Just sepia?

Yes. The pastel paper is coloured, and that does most of the work, I think.

Wow!! Absolutely Fantastic Chris!! :clap: :clap: You have captured the reflection in those gorgeous bottles beautifully - to say the least! I echo everyone else here and add my own Stunning!

Cheers Dahzl. :D

This is absolutely beautiful. Don't change a thing, and continue to post. I love this.

You have very strong areas, and those that you have just decided to not work on any more. My advice is to put it aside where you can see it for a few weeks, or however long it takes you to feel the inspiration again. I do this quite often, and some pieces have remained unfinshed for months, but I do not work on anything serious until the inspiration has built to a pressing level. You have a really good start on this, you find yourself stuck, but you are not committed to finish it right now. :)
