Work in Progress...

Since two people tried to buy my last cocktail painting at the same time, I am part way through another!
Here's how it looks right now, before the colour layers go on...




And here is how it started.
Layer 1...



Layer 2...




...It might seem a bit of a long winded way of going about things, but painting in this way means that the final piece will last a life time or two at least!

I'm confident that I will have this completed over the weekend. After that it will likely be on it's way to California! Of course I will post it here too so you can see the end result :0)

Meanwhile, if you are bored of Cocktails, you might want to pop over to The Naked Artists, to see what else I've been up to! Might see you there!

Happy painting all :0)

  3. The attention to detail appeals to the real me. The technical detail appeals to the potential painter in me. The painting itself appeals to all the senses .... perfect!

    1. I love trying to recreate the detail John - It's sometimes hard to leave out the unimportant stuff, but it makes for a better painting to pick and choose what to leave out as well as what to put in! And what do you mean 'Potential Painter'??? You are a Master John!! :0)

  4. So happy to be able to comment on your blog again, Sandra! Your cocktail paintings are so distinctive - I would know they were the product of your brush anywhere. The purchaser in California certainly will enjoy this one for a lifetime. Looking forward to seeing the final!

    1. Thanks Susan! Yes, I unlinked them from Google Plus, which seemed to be causing problems... Hopefully the painting will be all done at the weekend. I'm excited to see the result myself too!! ;0)

  5. Bonjour ma chère Sandra,
    A chaque fois que j'admire tes verres "cocktail" j'ai l'impression déjà de passer un excellent moment de partage... Je me demande si tu ne mélanges pas tes peintures à un alcool très spécial !! sourire !...
    Je suis déjà sous le charme de ce dernier en cours !... Toutes mes félicitations pour tes ventes, bien méritées.

    Gros bisous ☼
