Soy Sauce - sold

You have to be kind of minimalist with the brushstrokes on glass. The reflections on glass are a lot of fun to paint, they just pop the glass out of the background.

No one can do 'red' like you. This is really eye popping.

You do so many that I really love, but this has now moved to number one. Wow. It is PERFECT! That glass and lid (well, and the background too : ) are exquisite. A pleasure to look at.

I love it, especially the lid. O:-)

Wow! great contrast! Is that deep purple/red, maybe black for the sauce?

Thank you for commenting on my newest painting!
To answer the question what color is the soy sauce, I know it's hard to tell from the our color monitors! It is a very dark browny-maroonish, as close to soy sauce as I could get it.

Excellent brushwork Cathleen! It really does jump out at you? What brushes did you use for this?

Thanks for sharing!

Cathleen Rehfeld said...

Thank you everyone for such nice comments! Steve PP - for brushes, I used a combination of Langnickel 5590 sz 30 (big) and Umbria 5250F, they are both flats. The Umbria is very precise and the Langnickel is a little unpredictable, which is fun to be surprised. Richard Schmid, and Jeremy Lipking use Langnickel brushes, (and more fab artists that am not aware of that are using them!).
