A Very Yummy Painting

Vintage Yoo-Hoo bottle painting by Lani Mathis of GreenSpaceGoodsGoodness it's been a while! Michael and I have been deathly ill and it turns out that I've perforated my eardrum, so we've been doing more resting than crafting. I did get a little spurt of energy the other day though and started pondering the idea of a series of vintage soda bottle paintings. I'm trying to practice being more relaxed in my art. I've always been a photorealism and rulers girl when it comes to drawing specific objects, so this time I tried to draw and paint everything without fussy measurements and exact perspective. I'm pretty happy with the results. I love Yoo-Hoo and the graphics on the vintage bottles (far before my time) are so pretty. I believe this one is from the 1950's. If you have any suggestions for the next bottle painting, leave them in the comments. Off to take some more meds. Hope everyone is well and having a good weekend :)

No suggestions, but I'd love to see more. I really like how the first came out - I'm a big fan of vintage.
