Day #9 Green Bottle and Grapes, 7x5, oil

My goal today was to paint transparent glass and have fun.

Initial Drawing

Beginning to mass in shapes and colors.

Green Bottle and Grapes, 7x5, oil

I didn't have a lot of time to paint today, so I thought it would be fun to set up these simple pieces.  Still-life is my favorite subject, especially the reflective surfaces of brass, silver and copper, and the transparency of glass.

Again, I found my problem is deciding on a background color.  I leaned toward orange in this painting because the color scheme seems to be the secondary colors.  The background color is very important because it sets the stage for your painting.  How do you decide on your background color? I would love to hear from you.

Thank you for visiting.  I look forward to your comments and suggestions.

This painting is available on my Ebay page.
