In Progress Still Life

9"x12" Oil on panel
Progress has been slow recently, but I hope to increase my studio time and complete this soon. I have been working on the wine glass which is proving harder than I initial thought. There are lots of thin subtle highlights along the edges of the glass and rim (the contrast in this photo is much darker than the actual painting which is hiding some of the details.) that have been testing the steadiness of my hand to paint properly. But I'm happy with how it is coming out so far.
