A Study Of Bottles In Art

Over the last few months I have been going to art class but unfortunately the classes have now finished for the Summer.

During the last few weeks of the course I completed a large piece of art work. The subject was an arrangement of blue glass bottles. Here is my finished art work.

Bottles Art Work In Pencil

As you can see I drew the bottles in pencil and added the light and shade also using my pencil. The only colour used was for the background which was created using blue water colour paint.

I also painted another picture of a different arrangement of bottles in the last art lesson.

Bottles Painted Using Cardboard

Here I applied blue, black and white oil paints using a piece of cardboard. I really enjoyed creating this piece of art work and would never have believed that you could get results like this using cardboard.

I am really pleased that bottles were the subject of our art lessons during the last few weeks of the course. The reason is because we are always finding bottles that have been buried on the farm and I can now apply the art skills I have learnt on my course to draw and paint the bottles found on my farm. Watch this space for more bottle art work.
