In between reading blogs, trying to complete my TESOL and life I still strive to practice art. Back in the winter I took home a cidar (sprite) bottle from a restaurant. Sort of as an act of taking something nostalgic and also I knew it would make for great still life studies.
Today I did a watercolor study of the bottle. My greatest battle with watercolors is getting more depth and shadows.
And then afterwords I played around with my left over paint and a brush pen.
This is the first painting I did of the bottle back in the winter time.
