I've been working on more watercolor paintings of glass bottles. I have a small collection of vintage bottles I've found in thrift shops and dusty basements which I sometimes set up for still life scenes.
This one I decided to do by switching around colors from those of the originals. The gray color you see here is masking fluid I applied to make sure the white of the paper was preserved while I applied the background.
Here I've started to add some pretty unconventional colors to the jars and bottles.
Then I pulled off the masking and continued to paint in the details.
The final piece I named "Antique Bottles Two"
Because I'd already done a painting of this scene with more realistic colors.
They are both for sale along with many others at my Etsy Site: Watercolors by Leenie.
