Wine Glass and Friends

I haven't gotten around to setting up my own still life yet.  So I borrowed this photo from Wet Canvas.  Thankyou Brenda B for taking such a wonderful shot.  I'm really happy with how it turned out. I surprised my self with how dark I did go in the bg, it works great with the light coming in on the grapes and glass. Thanks everyone for looking in and if you like please add a comment.  Love to read them.

A Blue Mirror


   Well I thought I would share with all of you what our YOP ( Year of
Painting) was for October.  Thank you Ann  for providing the photo.  I am so happy with myself  for actually painting this, I don't usually do cars or trucks.  I spent  a whole afternoon just doing the truck with the different glazes of red and then the darks in the window and on the front. Completed the rest of tre painting the next day.   I did the background very undetailed because I wanted this truck to shine.  I named this Blue Mirror because when I finished and looked, the side mirror was blue. It shined in the photo because this is the love of who ever owns it, so it should shine in a painting too.  Please comment love to read them and thank you all for viewing this.
