Last week I painted a Bucket of Bows. Now, here
is my little Bottle of Bows. I know I usually do a
crazy patterned background, but this dotted ribbon
seemed to call for simplicity. Instead, I tried to pull
in other circular objects.
I am happy to report that I loosened up on this one quite
a bit. I was starting to worry that I had forgotten how!
Rather than using my usual black ground, I used a
medium rose. I found that the transparent look of
the glass was much easier on this lighter ground, plus
the colors seem to be a lot cleaner. I still prefer the
black for most things, but the lighter one really does
work much better for glass.
