I'm in awe of the exquisite beauty of your work, the labour of love that is clearly seen within the finished artwork.

Your conceptualisation of detail, is one of the most amazing and wonderful experiences that I have had the pleasure to see, my friend.

Thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful gift :heart:

I've bought a couple of bottles of this - years ago! I'll never be able to afford it again.

Wonderful handling of the reflections and refractions from the bottle and the glass. Was the bottle empty when you started, or did you empty it the process of making the drawing?
