“Wine for Two”
A painting by R.S.Mani
20”H x 16”W
Winsor & Newton Griffin (Alkyd)
Fast Drying Oil Color Paint.
I prefer Alkyd to traditional oil paints for the following reasons:
I am allergic to turpentine which is used in traditional oil painting.
Alkyd offers the excellent advantage of faster drying times compared to traditional oil colors, meaning that the traditional oil techniques of both impasto and glazing can be done in considerably less time and a painting can be completed in a single session.
Ideal for working indoor or outdoors.
Greater transparency means increased depth and clarity for glazes.
To paint this picture, I set up the wine bottle and the glasses in the basement with proper lighting. I worked for nearly one week to capture all the details I observed.
