Still Life: Bottle

Tough study. The hardest part about this painting was the simulation of glass and getting the drawing correct. The glass seemed to turn out okay, but the drawing was another matter.

This means that I just need to spend more time on my drawing skills. Drawing is one of those skills where, if you don't practice it constantly, it deteriorates extremely quickly. This is where still life studies of man-made objects comes in. There are definite shapes that are symmetrical and, if the drawing is wrong, it's pretty noticeable.
