Vintage Bottles - Daily Painting

"Vintage Bottles" 4 x 4" oil on gessobord Daily Painting

Happy New Year everyone....well, tomorrow actually.

Today's daily painting is of my two little Anchor Hocking vintage bottles. Love these little guys, but painting them was tough. So I took a photo, did a notan to get the darks laid down(black and white image on my computer), and then squinted really hard to get just enough detail to get the bottles to read.

The tough part was to get a composition that had some cohesion and not just two bottles sitting on a table. Besides, the shadows and the reflections were what made me want to paint them.
