How Beginners Can Compose & Paint A “Non-Boring” Still-Life
Step 6: Cast Shadow Of Wineglass
With the bluish purple mixture, keep painting the cast shadows, including the one created by the wine glass. You can add more Cerulean and a touch of Opera for a subtle change, as the wine in the glass will alter the shadow slightly due to its color and translucency. Slightly soften the edge of this cast shadow with clean water so it’s a little different from the lemon’s cast shadow, then use the size 4 brush to paint the details in the ends of the lemon with Sap Green mixed with a little Vandyke Brown.
