Wine Bottle Still Life (My First Painting)

Finished: October 20, 2008
Paint Used: Winsor & Newton, Artisan Water Mixable Oil

This was my first ever painting.  I was in 10th grade, and I was taking Painting I in high school.  My teacher set up a still life with wine bottles.  He got empty bottles and filled them with water.  Then he put a different colored dye in each bottle, to make the class's paintings more colorful. 

I haven't done a still life since then.  I know a still life isn't all that exciting to paint, but it definitely teaches technique and how to paint better and make the paint look like something real.

This painting is still somewhere in the art room at my high school.  I'll never see it again, but at least I have the pictures I took after I finished it. :)
