Bottle in Tissue

5 x 7, oil on panelToday's painting has a looser style and a more expressive brushstroke, which adds a lot of movement. But I think some of the transparent feeling of the tissue paper is lost when the paint strokes are more evident.

I'm thinking of starting a large one of these "tissue paper" paintings, and am wondering how to approach it - chunky paint and loose brushstrokes, or soft, transparent glazes without visible brushwork. Stay tuned.
