Coke and Flowers

A still life of some coke and beer bottles with some flowers in them.  I love painting glass / reflections and really enjoyed painting this one.  Love the way the light hits the bottles and changes the colours, and the way the water refracts the light.  

Painted from my own source photo, and adjusted by changing some of the flowers and adding an extra bottle in.

Acrylic on watercolour paper (300gm) 30x40cm.

c&c welcome

It's a lovely painting. The clear bottles and the reflections on it actually turned out very nice. Not sure about the brown colored ones, unless they are done with that look on purpose, but they still look good. The flowers look nice and there's a good variety of them.

Thanks for the nice comment! I was happy with all the bottles tbh I should post the reference photo as the brown bottles do look pretty much as I painted them. I kinda rushed the flowers a bit as I was getting a bored by then, as it took me ages to finish the bottles :-)

Np. I see. Since you mentioned, maybe it's best for the brown bottles to look that way to contrast with the clear reflective bottles. I kinda see the rush in the flowers, but they still look reasonably fine.

It is impressive, how you showed the transparency of the glass on your picture! It looks amazing and very realistic! You are great at painting glass! I also noticed the reflections of the bottles on the table, this picture is so detailed and professional. The composition also is great, I like that the bottles have different colours and the flowers are beautiful and various.
