5x7 inches Prismacolors on White Stonehenge

The drink of Mexico. I took the reference photo for this painting  late one Sunday afternoon while sitting under the palapa ( this is a open roofed structure covered with palm leaves ).  The sun shown through the bottle creating  wonderful abstract patterns.  I like to do paintings that have areas of reality combined with areas of abstraction.  I  find this intriguing.
I used the play of complimentary colors orange/blue to create the hot/cool mood in this painting.
I used thinner on the background and glass of the bottle midway through the layering process.
