This untraced watercolour is described by Sharp: “Mr. J. Mitchell has a
highly-finished water-colour painted about 1863, regarding which the artist
wrote:—‘The drawing of Brimfull had its origin from my
seeing a lady stoop to sip from a very full wine-glass before lifting it to her lips. The
reflection in the glass is intended for that of a gentleman dining with her, who would be
seated on the front side of the table unseen in the picture’” (Sharp,
270-271). DGR is referring to a reflection of a man in the mirror behind the woman.
