Glass of red wine today. With today's painting I was torn between this background and having it much darker beneath the base of the glass. In the end, I decided to go with this one so that I would have something to compare when I create a much darker background. Maybe, if I have the courage, I will paint tomorrow's painting with a very dark (almost black) background.
I have seen paintings with backgrounds that have very dark and very light streaks or shapes. I would like to try that but I really can't visualize what it would look like. I was going for that effect with the margarita but I didn't have enough contrast.
