Daily Painting: Improving your daily painting skills

Balsamic Vinegar 9" x 5" Oil on linen mounted to panel.

Just under 2 hrs.  
Limited palette consisting of white and black, cad yellow lt, perylene red,, transparent oxide red and phthalo green to get that pure transparent green of the bottle.

 What a fun bottle to paint, can you tell the brand? Probably not, unless you use it regularly. I really didn't want the details of the label to over power the overall painting. Squinting and the time limit was key to keeping the details out of focus. Also, I used no soft hair brushes,  just some good old worn out hog bristles.
