A lesson learned from this? When booze is the beverage of choice, it's best to do some pre-planning. The art in today's post is a lot sketchier and looser, which is up to your interpretation how that happened . . . ;) Don't forget to click pictures to make 'em bigger.
The Drink: Menage a Trois, White Moscato, California 2010
The Place: The Wet Stain Studio (Erm, I leave sometimes, I promise!)
The Art: Sakura brand Gellyroller pen, white. Black mounting board scraps, smooth & heavyweight.
Although I'm a big fan of sweet whites, I find some get cloying towards the end. I liked this Moscato a lot for its starting crispness and nice, lingering sweetness that didn't kill my throat. This wine is a blend ( Oh, that's where the name comes from ~ ) and the brightness made it really refreshing and enjoyable to sip on. Although it was crazy delicious freshly chilled, I had no problem drinking it after it sat out for a little while and warmed slightly. This wine is fruity and fresh tasting, and made me anxious for summer time sipping!
Doing any sort of art in inverse feels awesome. It was a great change of pace, and made me consider line and value differently. As someone who does a lot more line-art than value work, it was a little bit of a challenge to see the white as more than just a highlight color.
