Sunshine through the bottle

Sunshine through the bottle
Watercolour  30cm x 20cm

This latest painting was produced as a contribution to the Axarquia Art challenge - "Reflections".  I tried getting reference photos outside on a bright, sunny day and was disappointed with the result.
However on taking the set-up inside and having the sun come through window glass first the  fantastic range of greens showed up.

"fabulous work Nigel.wonderful glass work....janet x" - Janet Folan

"Oh Nigel that's marvelous! Watercolor is just a perfect media for doing glass and light. I adore the crisp bright light and the mottled green glass color of the bottle, the wine glass reflections are fabulous as well!" -   Deborah Cromeans Ramos

"beautifully observed and painted: free, but accurate". -  Jackie Hardman

"love it,a true artist makes people stop and really "see"the magic of the simple things that surround us.  Thanks for the opportunity to admire your watercolors"!  - Oana
