More Progress on a Watercolor Painting Series with Wine

I paint liguid the way I paint something that is solid. I just squint my eyes until I can see only the light or dark colors, and the shapes of them. I imagine it’s something other that what it is (It isn’t a glass of wine!). And I paint it as though it’s just abstract colors and shapes…and I try not to think that it’s a dark, burgundy-colored liquid inside a glass…just a shape with color. Got it?

This isn’t finished yet!

Here is the reference photo I am using (a little off color), as well, I have the actual glass sitting in front of me on my drawing table.
