Fearless Friday, Summer Sipper

Let’s cool off today with a refreshing Summer cocktail

I have been on a drink painting kick this summer

After a month of daily watercolors in July,

I enjoyed getting back to acrylic with another “Summer Sipper”

The photos below were my inspiration for today’s cocktail

I started with a black canvas and painted in the background

with shades of blue and turquoise,

leaving a glass shape in the center

Next a stroke of yellow orange

and orange

Then lighter and darker shades of yellow and orange

Next a few lines with off-white to indicate the glass rim

Placing the lemon slice

The straw with a refracted image caused by the glass rim

Filling in details and more dabs of color

Creating some drama in the foreground

And a green sprig for garnish!

White highlights and some small dabs of color in the background to finish

“Summer Sipper” 8″ x 10″ acrylic on canvas

Food and drinks are fun to draw and paint~

have some fun and

Be Fearless!
