365 Days of Drawing Challenge - 344 to go...



Cosmopolitans make me act silly. Any hard liquor does. So if you can't drink 'em, draw 'em. This is last night's drawing - challenge met.

For inspiration I post an old dutch still life to show how glass should be done. Ahh....those dutch guys sure had it down. Bet they drank Cosmopolitans or something very similar. The patience it took.

My cosmo looks a little tipsy. Camera distortion surely?

At first I thought this might be among your latest still lifes, Johanna!
I remember the amazing job you did with the lobster and the whole set up you had done with that........ I also remember how it smelled after a while.....
Drinking the cosmo might make you a slower painter, but it might make it so you wouldn't smell your props...

Happy painting (and drawing).
