A detail

I started painting from the corner outwards to the edge of the paper.

A correction

I noticed that one of the red bottle was not wide enough on the left side, so I made a correction.

Working all around the bottles as well as the foreground.  At the moment.  I don't need to work on the background because it's almost white.

I started with the red bottle in the middle because I'm using this as a measure for the other values and colors.  I start to build around this bottle.

Today, I made a light drawing of the bottles.  First I estimated where the tops of the bottles go to make sure they all fit.  Then I developed one of the bottles more than the rest to use it as a measure.
