And talk about an exercise in fore-shortening. You nailed it Kim - great work!

I find bottles SO difficult to draw, let alone paint. There's the whole 'neck' issue, and trying to get them symetrical and then you go and add fore-shortening to the equasion!!! I think this is SO much more difficult than some might think and yet you manage to make it look effortless! :0)

I think drink is a great idea to celebrate a great painting.

Exquisite, Kim! I love the clean lines and reflected light--and those grays just make all the greens and reds POP, nice work!!

Beautiful.
