Go back to your blue mixture and carefully paint the rim on top of the bottle cap right below the plunger, effectively stacking the different “levels”. Apply blue paint to the spout as well, connecting it to the lid while leaving some white for a metallic effect. Next, sketch and paint some reflective lines on the sides of each cylindrical shape to break up the monotony of the oval forms. Keep stopping and stepping back to look at the overall effect of your colors and to get a fresh perspective on where your painting is going. Lastly, try not to touch the wet orange paint, or else the colors will smudge or bleed into one another (you can let the orange areas dry first if you’re worried).
