More Glass and Carrots

A bit more work on this one. Background and table will be next and then it's time for some tweaking here and there. It's a little sunken in so I won't know until I oil out near the end what parts are working and which areas need more work. I like to oil out by using a mix of 60% oms to 40% refined linseed oil. I brush it on and then gently pat most of it off with a Viva paper towel. I also found that the last oil out is the best time to take the final photo because the colors are up without looking too glossy as it does when you spray with retouch varnish, so you don't get the glare spots.
