YEEES .....
Love the deep browns and aged look. And seasonal too :)
many more yeeeeees love love this one!
Your darks are especially rich in this painting. I have an extremely large bottle (for a bottle of vanilla anyway) that came from Mexico. You may have inspired me to paint it one day though it isn't nearly as elegant in shape as yours.
I can taste it! Yum. The highlights on the brown glass are wonderful!
I always love the alchemy created when you paint a cork in a bottle.. and you have done it again!
What a beautiful bottle you show here. I love the way the light plays on it. The seasonal ingredients for cooking and eating that you have painted recently give me pleasure. Thanks Julian
