Beautiful Sylvia!

Are they on a mirrored table?

Re: Five Glass Bottles

Thanks for the nice comments about my painting Doug, Bill, Jan, Char, John, and Sharon.

I really enjoy painting glass because it is almost abstract since you don't paint the object, you paint what you see through it.

Sharon, Yes, they are on a glass table top. There is actually a bit more difference between the background and the glass top but it didn't show up as well. I wanted to get the bottles as accurate as possible so didn't worry about the background too much when taking the photo.

Sylvia

I love how you've created the see-through bottles and the reflections.
