I took masses of photos of red wine in a glass from various angles, with and without shadows. It was refilled once or twice as I needed lubrication from time to time.
I chose the angles that appealed for my still life composition; drew, scanned, resized and printed my template outline. This gave me sets of blanks to trial different fillings.
As this design will be cut from lino I’m limited in the detail I can achieve and, as my followers may know by now, I love simplified stylization anyway.
These are the best of the bunch and I’ve chosen my preferred one, so time to move on to the next stage – cheese.
Cheese? Goes very well with wine, but how to draw it? Can’t wait for next exciting episode.
Glasses look good.
Mary, my initial Camembert drawing looks a bit like the first wheel Man ever made and not much like a cheese. Still having fun though!
