The finished painting
I begin the painting by drawing a rough image on the canvas. This will be painted over so detail is not important. I just want to figure out where I want the image. This is a large painting 30x40 so it will take a lot of paint to get it to completions.
Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated worldwide by Irish people and increasingly by non-Irish people (usually in Australia, North America, Ireland) as well. Celebrations are generally themed around all things Irish and, by association, the colour green. Both Christians and non-Christians celebrate the secular version of the holiday by wearing green or orange, eating Irish food and/or green foods, imbibing Irish drink (such as Guinness) and attending parades.
I decided to honor my Irish roots and paint green beer today. I started with a pencil sketch to work on the placement of the glasses.I chose a small 8x6 canvas and painted in the background to get a feel for the glass' of beer.
