Still Life #16 Dark Old Fashioned
#16 - This one started as a precise gold and green painting with crisp edges. Then, I decided I was tired of the same old thing filling in pencil shapes and I began slinging paint, spraying water and alcohol and dripping paint. Then, I began scrubbing and sponging paint. Finally I brought out the sandpaper.
The edge of the bottle on the right sort of disappeared in the shadows so I didn't bother to find it again. To me it looks a bit like an old fashioned picture.
