Magic Merlot

Postby nigelartist » Tue Mar 24, 2015 9:57 am

The underdrawing for my next artwork project.

Yellow ochre background with crimson alizarin possibly. Hooker's green for bottle and crimson alizarin. Burnt umber for table top.

Light coming from left to right.

NB. The streak down the centre is where I spilt some of the wine on the canvasboard!!! LOL I wan't drunk either more the pity.

Over to my fans and critics for comments/suggestions...

With respect and not trying to be effusive...
This is me, trying to be objective, I love the depth and glow
of that bottle. Your red on those wonderful walls and table give
me a message of anguish and heartbreak. It is a study of
contradictions but in a good way.

With all the green depth and the red on walls and table- what's the red for?
What source is the red coming from-Is it a light source?

It's birth blood from creating a new artwork which also equates to the crimson alizarin wine colour that is absent from the bottle.
Splashed on the walls perchance...you tell me Sigmund!
