The Last of the Wine

This is from my most recent Tuesday night art class. The instructor cancelled the live model for the last three weeks, so once again we had the chance to set up a still life. I had a little more time to think about it this week, and more time to work on it too! I found a lovely piece of polished cotton that I liked, and after starting with that was able to find a few objects I liked as well, and this was the result.

Having a chance to set up still lifes has been a lot of fun, more fun than painting live models actually, LOL. But learning to paint people from life is one of those things I feel is "good for me" as an artist, rather like taking my medicine or eating my broccoli. Not much fun but I feel I should do it!
