I don't think many people here on NG will truyl appreciate how difficult it would be to make this. I've done a few still life with pencil, graphite pencil, molding erasure, etc but this is completely different. First of all, like the person below me stated, you were very brave and actually very good with your attempt to make glass. I think it is extremely difficult to capture the right reflections and shadows with any form of class that has curves to it. I like the contrast between the cloth which is rather rough to the preciseness off the glass bottle.

There are errors but I consider still life to be so much more difficult than most of the forms of art you see on NG. I think the review below me pointed out practically everything that could be considered wrong with your art. Yet again, I think you have done a wonderful job with the colors like you did and especially with your still life style. Making still life period is hard but you've also added considerable color. Very very well done.

first of all let me congrat you for even attempting glass!... transparent things are one of the hardest things to paint and draw, with that out of the way let me comment futher... the red cloths shading is harshly done but blends perfectly together the orange is great, along with the metal work... i however feel the need to point out that the top of the glass bottle doesnt seem to curve to much and the label doesnt curve enough if you can see what i mean... other then that... great fine art!

Katatafisch responds:

yep, youre totally right, the label throws the whole perspective off...didnt notice it while painting ^^

and i agree the cloth paiting is harshly done but i aimed for a contrast between messy strokes and more refined rendering

thanks alot for commenting...have a nice day
