Old bottles and grapes

Well the bottles and old, but the grapes are fresh.  I don't know what these old bottles were used for, cream I think.


  1. This is a great painting,it just grabs my attention, love it!

  2. Thanks Danny Boy. I like painting dark ones - or what they call chairoscuro. I'm going to do more. The thing is, I usually make my own black, well very dark browns/blues. For example the background in this raw umber with a bit of french ultra-marine. These colours are more expensive, which is one reason I often go for a light coloured background. Titanium white is very cheap.
