GREEN BOTTLE (in progress)
16 x 20" Oil on canvas
Please contact me through www.suzanneberry.com for purchase info.
Well, how surprised was I to find out I had no small canvasses left for my daily today? Completely! This does tend to happen when one doesnt' keep account of one's stock. So I ordered more and continued work on this piece. Surprisingly, this is the reference I tried to use for my very first 5 x 5" daily! Not surprisingly, it did not work on such a small canvas, to say nothing of being able to complete it in one day! I seem to by using the word "surprisingly" a lot.
Again, I digress. Obviously there is a lot more to do, but it's shaping up. This kind of painting is like a jigsaw puzzle. Once the pieces start taking shape, showing depth and texture, the image comes together. I can't wait to do the bright work on the bottle and the reflection/shadow. But for now, time for a glass of wine and watching the sun set on the porch with himself.
