Weekend Challenge – Bottle and Glass

Welcome to this weekends challenge. It’s quite a tricky one. We would like you to draw or paint a bottle and glass with liquid in half or three quarters full. It doesn’t have to be a wine bottle and wine glass which is the obvious choice. It could be a beer bottle and pint glass, a tumbler and a bottle of water, a glass of orange juice and a jug or if you are feeling extravagant, a Champagne flute glass and Champagne bottle!

The challenge here is to draw the bottle with equal sides and the correct shaped ellipses. The second challenge here of course is to be able to create a glass the correct shape with the illusion that there is a liquid inside. This challenge isn’t for the feint hearted!

You can draw or paint the artwork in any medium at any size with or without a background. If you are portraying a wine bottle and glass with wine in, we take no responsibility if you start to drink your still life setup…!

We have added a few photos below for inspiration, you can draw from some of these if you would like, don’t forget you can click each photo to view and download a larger version. Have fun and let us know how you get on, we look forward to seeing your results on our Facebook page next week!

Post your work on our Facebook Group or email it to us for inclusion on our blog later this week.

All of the photos we post on our London Art College Weekend Challenges are copyright free. Feel free to use the artwork you produce however you wish. If you would like your artwork posted here on our blog, email it to Melanie at techsupport@londonartcollege.co.uk. If you have any Weekend Challenge requests let us know too! Best of luck and happy drawing and painting!
