Distort-Ted WIP 1

 After a couple of weeks break from painting it was fun to pick up the brushes again. Several of my friends have been painting glass objects recently and it got me thinking about a possible Ted painting... I just love the distorted shapes that can occur when you look at things through different shaped glass objects so I had great fun thinking of different ways I could distort my little Teds or the objects around them.

The painting is still in it's very early stages. I wanted a rich dark background to really set off the glass bottles but also wanted to continue the theme of distortion in the background too so I decided to add in subtle lines and shapes rather similar to those you sometimes see through glass. In some lighting conditions they are hardly visible but in others they are more clearly seen.

Can you work out how many Teds there will be in my painting?
