Wine O'Clock

15x11 mixed media on Arches 140 lb cold press wc paper done today.  It is currently featured on WetCanvas in the Weekend Drawing Event hosted by Christine in Australia.  I used charcoal pencil to sketch over a poured watercolor primary colored background.  My intention was to paint poinsettias but saw the wine bottle, glasses, plants, and chair and thought the still life set up was more interesting.  Caran D'Ache NeoColor II wax crayons used for accent colors at the end.  Some realism, abstraction, and imagination here.  The mosaic table's broken tiles were outlined around sections of paint already there from the underpainting, then enhanced.  Now they might resemble cheese wedges.  Not a great painting but a fun one.
