Wonky Bots X

I save these old antique bottles for rendering challenges. They are very often wonky (a bit out of kilter). So....they have a little personality.
These are small works painted with Lukas Oils on board.








A Happy New Year, Derek

Re: Wonky Bots X

Derek, these are very good!! They both would deserve their own thread. I also think the composition in both paintings is very well done. Also lovely controlled painted forms in the bottles, like glass material would expect, and yet so loose looking. Beautiful work!
You are going to the Old Master's direction!

Great works! The second one is outstanding. The shadows with filtered light passing through the bottles is so convincing.

Re: Wonky Bots X

When I first saw this title I though maybe you had something wrong with your car! Wonky or otherwise, those bots are stunning, Derek. The highlights on the glass are wonderful. I especially love that pale one. When I look at works like this I try and fight the optical illusion created, in this case however, it is so well done I cannot - all I see is beautiful Wonky bots! Excellent!

Nice work, Derek.
My mind has been off painting of late - these might get me back.
Have to give some glass a whack.
Thanks, buddy.

You inspire me, your bottles have nice reflections and highlights. In the second work the shadows on the wall give a great charm.

Re: Wonky Bots X

I am almost afraid to know one over and break it.

Both paintings are great but I like the lighter background on the second. The combination of the background showing through the bottles and the reflected light is so convincing and beautiful. Gary
