Hope you are enjoying your weekend, and that the weather is being kind to you!
Today I have another bottle piece for Moo Mania and More. I was inspired by the Grimm Brothers' fairy tale 'The spirit in the bottle' (Der Geist im Glas), and by one of my big glass vases. I used kraft paper (A3) for the background, and painted it with black gesso mixed with a bit of blue. After drawing the outline of the bottle I painted the face using diluted acrylics and various pastel colours. Then I coloured the vase using pastel chalks. This was a fun make!
(the little spots were caused by dropping a bottle of spray ink on the table which spritzed, but I quite like the effect, even if it was not intended!)

And this is the vase. The strange spirit you can see is a reflection of me taking the photo....
The day started with a wonderful sunrise:

Have a great day you all, take care,
