A public holiday has been declared, a day for street parties, hog roasts and bonfires!
So I have decided to paint my version of the celebrations, flags,beer, nibbles and wine! It may not be to everyone's taste but it will be to mine !
The beer I'm using is a delightful ale called "Spitfire", brewed in Kent by Shepherd and Neame Spitfire ale
It will be BIGGER, BRIGHTER, BOLDER AND.....BRITISH! :)
"Red,White and Booze" Acrylic on box canvas, 24"x 20"x 1.5".. Enjoy......;)
Day 1, laying the table......
|Working on the under painting|
|Painting in the glass and beer|
Day 3, a bit of detail......
|Creating the detail that brings the picture to life|
Day 4, adding the nibbles and glass.... (Not a very good photo as the weather's grim today and the light is bad :/ )
|Putting in the final details|
...and finished! My tribute to the jubilee celebrations!!!!
