Well, this has been cropped a ton. The original photo by Leslie Hawes was very beautiful but my shadow turned out murky and the bottle looked awfully lonely without his shadow so I gave him a new friend from my garden instead. This is for the Monthly Sketch Project Blog. Check it out and join us.

Following the Masters Challenge. I had such a wonderful time loosing myself in the process of trying to paint in the style of Vincent van Gogh. I was inspired by the Olive Trees in the Alpilles (pictured above my painting) but I used a reference photo of mine to loosely paint the hills by my house. Maybe I should go back and make the olive trees look more like oak trees?
