"David's Eye"

"David's Eye"
Created in Corel Painter iX
Brushes used : Oil Pastels & Dry Palette Knife

The hardest thing to adjust for in this painting was the power the bottle had over everything else in the composition. It was the darkest and the tallest. To tame it, I increased the transparency of the bottle and made the piece darker in tone so that the bottle seems to be pushed into the background. I increased the difference in value in the foreground items so that they would jump forward.
