Cologne Bottles

Cologne Bottles - 6 x 6 Oil on Gesso Board

These little cologne bottles of my husband's have been hanging out in my studio for a while, waiting to be painted (he's not using them anymore :)  There are a whole collection of them—part of a set I bought for him years ago, with a nice variety of shapes and colors.  So when I saw the DPW challenge for this week—glass—I thought "perfect time to paint these bottles!"  The shadows were interesting too, especially looking through the bottle on the right to the shadow in back of it—it had a minimizing effect.  Fun exercise!
