In a landscape painting I usually work back to front. In this still life I wanted to block in some of the background to have an underpainting of color and then as I work on the bottles I can throw some the color I use in the bottles into the background so it will tie into the whole painting.
I worked on some of the bottles and blocked in the other 2. I’m not sure why I chose that color. I just wanted something that glowed a bit. Neutralized the background so I can keep things relating to each other. Also starting the tabletop. I have a feeling this will go through many changes before I’m happy.
