Not long' ago an Artist friend of mine and I where talking about Merlot's. I've being dying to do an wine painting for so long kinda lingered for a wile' agreeing later on..what kind to portray? since theirs so many! besides Art nothing beats the good company of you're family and friends wile having good wine'.
So here is the process of one of my recent paintings Enjoy! the Painting is made in Oils on a canvas panel.
Surprisingly at the same time, wile answering to my friend the mail man came with my Art materials' and I said Oh Joy! So here is to you My Dearest of Friends amigo and Art compadre'!! Cheers!
I lay on the first layers for the bottle elongating the bottle's neck more like the wine of my preference', uhmmm not even for a second caring about lights at this point just adding dark's.
My Impressionistic side Said paint it Low key' with highlights on the blue's... but my Modern era' style said, This wine deserves to be portray as it is!!...now give it some class and make sure to separate the glass proportions accordingly instead of a champagne Glass!!'.
Now what kind of wine is this?.. I know is Merlot but is heavy merlot very thick fruity woody and by the way smells divine...yes it goes well with cheese as well' the cherries are the essense and the spirit of the wine...so all plays well in this composition and of course the background, some what like a obscure pub or bar..where you still feel movement and energy coming all around...
