I have a commission to paint Jack Daniel's, Coke and lime... and so I set it up, sketched it in, poured in the whiskey, and.... couldn't pour in the Coke - the color of the whiskey was so beautiful. This is from someone who can hardly stand the smell of it! I refrained from adding the Coke for this one painting, just because the liquid in the bottom of the Waterford Crystal glass was like a golden jewel.
First I was saying "AUGHHH! Crazy woman - how on earth can this be painted!" Then the OTHER voice in my head showed up saying "Oh, calm down. Anything can be painted. What do you SEE?" And my breathing slowed and I just concentrated on exactly what I saw, without over-thinking or actually even drawing all those 'cuts' in the glass. And the liquid in that bottle was so FUN to paint!
