    Wine and Candle VII

    Ah yes, the old two thirds one third approach.. Not really the way I would normally go about it, but for some reason or another, it is what is happening.. :?

    The glass and the wine are unbelievably good. I feel you're on the verge of being Ambient Design's most powerful ambassador.

    Wow! Brilliant as always. (You couldn´t bear to show a whole glass of white wine, eh? :wink: ) Just kidding. There´s probably no one currently on the forums who can handle glass the way you do.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Great stuff Rick.
    Going wonderfully well.

    If you don't mind me asking, what's your general technique/approach to achieving such a polished look. Multiple layers vs single layer, favoured tools? That kind of thing.
    If I'm asking something already answered in another thread, do please point me at it. It's so easy to miss stuff with such a plethora of goodies about.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    Hi Nick, actually this one has been completed and is now in the gallery.. As to the process and tools, I will at one time or another in most paintings use just abot all that is offered in the tool box.. However, mostly I use oil and chalk.. I like to work without the knife if possibele, and do my blending by painting, rather than spreading.. Layers?? Bunches and bunches of layers.. Each grape might have 3 to 4 layers, then I combine them and start on another grape.. When all grapes are complete, I would then combine all the grapes into one layer.. Each one of us probably has their own process for doing things.. Mine is long and drawn out, but it is really how I prefer it.. Hope I have helped.. Thanks again.. By the way, your work is just wonderfull.. very professional..

    Hey thanks for the info and the nice comments Rick. Much appreciated.

    I'm a great fan of having lots of layers too. I can get in terrible knots when I forget to name often enough and the file can get bulky and slow. BUT for me the pros far outweigh the cons in the freedom it gives you. It's obviously a system that works well for you, looking at the results you get. Nice one.
