Champagne and Crystal by Darren Maurer

6" x 8"

Another commission painting finished! Painting the many facets of the cut crystal champagne glass was challenging enough. I painting this piece with my eyes squinted shut most of the time. When you looking at your still life set up with your eyes squinted it forces you to see the shape and color and not get hung up on small unimportant details. Little details can be added right at the end of the painting but the shape, structure and color of the objects is the most important part of the piece to get a nice likeness of the still life. I cropped off the top and bottom of the bottle but it is still unmistakably a champagne bottle. I did add the small details of the bubbles in the champagne at the end and they look so cool. This is painting 216 in my Painting A Day Series. This painting is a Sold commission piece.
