A Work in Progress

Click the link below to view a series of photos taken while I was painting a recent work. I was asked to paint a series of wine pictures, which will be available on my website soon. I love painting reflective surfaces and these were fun to execute. The challenge is to look for the abstract shapes and to refrain from thinking of "glasses" or "wine bottle". The other challenge is to create drastic value changes to add depth and drama to the painting. This piece was painted on a full sheet of Arches 300 lb. cold press watercolor paper. The finished size is 24.5 inches in height by 17.25 inches in width. To view the progress photos go to:
