A still life painting of wine glass on red paper using charcoal and white pastel pencil

After having created a pomengranate and a capsicum on red FABRIANO paper, wanted to try out a transparent glass as subject on CANSON paper. Hence sketched out an empty wine glass. The symmetry is not too perfect but I was more keen on getting the highlights and the dark tones right. The red colour of the paper acts as the mid tone.

Still life paintings and sketches are a great way of enhancing one's drawing and sketching skills.
Next, I am working on still life paintings on grey paper. I have done couple of black and white works on grey paper and the effects are amazing. Especially with metallic objects where apart from shadows there are plenty of reflections too.
