Antique Remedy

Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 6"x6"

I started out with the background much know to get that perfect gray? BUT it wasn't working with the warm amber bottle. When I cooled down the background for a better temperature balance, it started to come together. This bottle has such nice detail that I wanted to almost make it a portrait. Capturing all the interesting features including the dust on top and the peeling stickers.

Beautiful piece, Michael. The detail is just the right amount.
