Soda Bottle

8" x 14", gouache .

An quick exercise in drawing and painting from observation. Done in prussian blue, sepia, yellow ochre and white. Drawn first with red conté crayon on chipboard.

Could've used better lighting, fluorescent bulbs kill surface interest to my eye and washes out contrasts and shadow; plastic is hard enough to render under the best of conditions.

This would've been more satisfactory with a single incandescent bulb or in direct sunlight.
