172 A Glass of Wine

A Glass of Wine. I realized that today's painting is the first still life in the series. I am a bit amazed that I haven't done any until now. In addition to a long history of still life painting through the last 500 years, painting still lifes is a great way to work on your painting skills. The techniques you learn painting from a still life, color and value, making objects move back or come forward. Using soft edges vs. hard edges, etc. translate to figure and landscape paintings. Painting distant trees against a fence line in the foreground of a landscape is the same, if of a lesser degree than painting the edge of a table against a plaster wall background.
Here's a glass of wine for you. Knowing me, it's most likely just a nice chianti to go with my Italian sauage and salad.
