That is real wine in that glass :) I wanted this painting to have a kind of moody kind of mood. The light is cold, north daylight, as I set up this close to my window. I decided to use another light source also, to be able to see my work, but I tried to shield it off so that it would not affect the scene too much. The most difficult part was the cloth, and it's color. I didn't quite know how to make it green the way it was, but I discovered I could use mostly thick Viridian to get it look right.
