The end of the night - SOLD

"What is the definition of a good wine? It should start and end
with a smile." ~William Sokolin
This is how I know daily painting is paying off. Back in June this would have made me weep and gnash my teeth. Glass used to scare the bejeebers out of me! Now I love painting it...all the rich colours and shapes...It's a challenge but an enjoyable one.
6" x 6" / oil on panel / $75

Love the composition Kim! Very untypical -which is refreshing- and great rendering and colors.

Good going Kim. It really is great when we push the boundries and pick up on something new. I think you did a splendid job on this piece.

JeMA said...

Wow! I think you have mastered the glass. Still scared of it over here! Great blog, great art.

Excellent color harmony and masterful brushwork. Truly great.

All this wine and I wasn't invited???

It looks like you had a lot of fun with this one. You've seduced my eyes with the indent at the bottom of the bottle. Love your cap too!

Wow! I agree this is a really great composition. Also you nailed the colors of the glass to make it read as dark green glass. Very cool, wish I'd done this. :)
