Title: Glass Composition
Post by: V on January 25, 2013, 01:56:20 PM
Hello  :wave: everyone. So, I'm in the planning stages of painting the next subject I wanna work on. I chose the Glass exercise next.
Here are the bottles I plan to use:
 
 
Composition wise, Im trying to figure what surface is best to use for the still life.
 
Reflective subject vs reflective surface?
 
Non-reflective
 
Dark
 
Light
 
 
Cant decide cuz I like them all. But since glass is the focus, which is the best suface to showcase this particular bottles. I might use 1 or 2 or all (depending what I dug up as props  ;D  or without). The lighting use were the same on all.
Thank you in advance.

I like the center one because the lines on the table repeat in the lines formed by the bottles. The table lines also draw your eye to the focal point, the bottles

 :thankyou: Diane and Nolan.  I was already on last stages of painting the glass bottle when I got your replies.
Sorry about that  :flowers: . I will definitely use it though for my next ones since this is not the last that I will be painting glass.
Nolan: Didnt even notice the lines on that one  :D . Thanks for pointing it out.

Nolan, of course you are right.  I almost picked that one too, but I was afraid a pro would say the lines are competing... should have gone with my first choice!

Sometimes we are our own worst enemy.....second guessing ourselves.  :think:
