Watercolour Wednesday — Water Bottle on Knee.

A bit hard to tell but this is a plastic water bottle resting on my knee. We were driving around on the weekend, on our way to a wedding, and the sun was so very bright and making these spectacular reflections through my water bottle. I used a photo for this one–another one of those captured moments when I didn’t have the time or materials to do the painting right then. This would have been pretty tricky to paint from life anyway since the bottle was resting on my knee…

  1. I love your paintings of transparent bottles and glasses with water and the reflections and shadows.
    Maybe you could to a post sometime on how to do that? It’s the simplifying, or selecting that I find so difficult.

    • Thank you very much! That’s a good idea. I like doing in progress photos of paintings but I checked and I’ve not done any in progress shots of the glass or reflection ones. I’ll have to do that :)
