Since my last update I made many highlight changes throughout the painting. I am in the process of finishing the base of the wine glass , wood grain on the table and the reflections and shine.
The base of the glass and the table need to be slightly out of focus to the rest of the painting to give it depth and allow the body of the glass and the neck of the bottle to be the focal point. larger brush strokes and blending the edges of the paint stroke was necessary to accomplish this.
(The lower image is 95% complete. Shifting back and forth between the images will reveal the subtle changes I’ve made.)
Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
