Bottled



This week's theme was bottled; I did this still life scene in both watercolor and oils.  It's interesting to see how different the same subject can look in different mediums:

Watercolor
Oils

 







                                                                                 

Side Note -- I'll be away from the computer for a few days, as my right eye needs to be rested.  I've been having trouble focusing, so I went to the opthomologist yesterday.  Turns out my right cornea is mysteriously swollen, so the focal length is distorted, causing everything to look like it's underwater.  As a precautionary measure, I'll be taking a few days off from reading/typing/painting to rest it. Hopefully this, along with some prescribed inflammatory steroid drops will bring things back to normal...
