Bottles #2

I love glass for the way it refracts light, and for what happens to light and objects when water is added, as in the olive oil bottle. Stems get all lovely and distorted.

Some of you have asked how I get deep, nearly opaque passages in watercolor, such as at the top of the tallest vase. You don't always have to add water, or perhaps just enough to allow the paint to move.
