This weekends challenge is to draw or paint a glass bottle in sunlight. In any media, paint, collage, pencil, digital etc the choice is yours!

You can use this photo below if you are inspired by it, or you can see what you can find to draw yourself in your home, whether it be a wine bottle or a vase. Just make sure it has some light passing through it so that you can draw the shadows on the ground.

The photo below is very interesting due to the unusual shape of the bottle, the corners and perspective at the bottles base is a bit tricky, so watch out for that! You can draw the bottle on its own, or you can incorporate the background too, which would be especially interesting to capture in colour with the subtleties of the blues and silvers.
