Glass of Vanilla Porter

It has been pretty crazy round here. And Christmas is right around the corner. Yikes! This was drawn with Sketchbook Ink which recently got an update. It is a nice sketching app.

Duck and Cover

flexibleflexible
I thought the other day that if I opened a pub in Austin it should be called the Duck and Cover… The idea is ok but I might to try refine the drawing and type more, it could be more fun. The date is not correct on the top one, should of been today.

Beer Glass #6 Revisited

Happy New Year. I was just about to paint over Beer Glass #6, when I thought maybe it just needed an improved paint job. I think it is better.

Pecan Porter at the Whip-In

I had a nice time hanging at the Whip-in with friends. Enjoyed a 512 Pecan Porter. Yum.

Revisiting

flexible
When I was looking for a panel to paint over for todays painting these two were selected (beer glass #4 and eggplant #1), looking at them I thought I would try reworking rather than completely painting over them. I think they were improved upon, but they may still get painted over.
Eggplant #1 Revisted

Maredsous Bruin Beer Bottle

Another fine brew with an equally lovely bottle. Maredsous Bruin, they make a Triple as well but my buddy Scott and I prefer the Bruin.

Beer Glass #7

I liked beer glass #6 and wanted to try painting another version of that.

Beer Glass #6

Back to the oil paints. A couple of little challenges with this painting. Use one size brush, and finish the painting before being able to drink the beer (a St. Arnold’s Amber).
Comments

Beer Glass #5

flexible
I painted this before, from a photo, and now on the ipad. Speaking of which, I am really enjoying painting and drawing on the ipad but Gloria feels like I am cheating. I don’t know myself, there are many things in common with these two mediums (and the clean up is really easy with the ipad). I think I need to try some oil paintings using the ipads paintings as a sketch/guide. Yeah. This weekend look for that. Anyway, back to this painting, I really like the quality of light in it. It’s beer-thirty!

Beer Glass #4

Liked the composition from yesterday and trying another version working from that painting.
Comments

Beer Glass #3

flexible
One can never tire of painting beer (IMHO). I had a difficult time getting the color of the beer right (Agave Wheat), but liked the composition enough.
Comments

Beer Bottle #3

I decided to go back into Beer Bottle #2.

Skull with Wheat

This painting is inspired by the skull on a label of Agave Wheat by Brackenridge Brewery. A yummy brew that my buddy Bill brought by. Thanks Bill. Please come over again. With beer. Seriously.

Pearl Snap Can

Back to painting beer. Ahhhh. Stopped by the Whip-In to restock and picked up some Peacemaker and Left Hands Milk Stout. I had set aside a Pearl Snap can to paint so today was the day.
Comments

Beer Bottle

flexible
Here is another attempt to do a painting from one of the sketches I have done. This the Peachy Beer from our trip this summer. I like how it turned out. The viscosity of the paint was right and maybe that is the trick for me, that the paint flows a bit more easily and kind of feels like drawing with the pen.

Austin Beerworks Glass

flexible
Michael and Adam of Austin Beerworks were kind enough to take Gloria, and friends Griselda and Aaron on a tour of their brewery in North Austin today. It was a very flavorful time. We saw the Works and sampled all their beers. In a word, awesome. I hope to return and do some drawings soon. If you haven’t had any of their beers you really must try them, they are all delicious. You can pick them up at my local favorite beer stop, the Whip-In (among others). I am going to take another shot at this glass today...

A Glass of Magic Hat #9

106 degrees requires a nice beer to paint. Magic Hat #9 does the trick, at least temporarily!

Cap

A very quick painting before heading to the tennis courts on our 106 degree day. The label on the cap says, beer nuts, but I didn’t make it legible.

Beer Glass #2

I really did not like the portrait of Mason from the previous day so I turned it into a glass of beer. Old Chub to be exact. It’s a scotch ale. Good, but I doubt I will buy it again. Below is a in progress shot that is fun. I almost wish I had stopped here, Mason as a beer glass... / Painted over

Beer Glass

I love a nice beer. Painting beer, really painting glasses, is so much fun. If I get lucky, I sort zone out and just start seeing blocks of color. I’m very happy with how this turned out. The underpainting on this one is the former xbox controller.

Good Beer, Bad Painting

flexible
Enjoyed a really nice Kona stout with my buddy Bill. Actually, Bill brought the beer, which is even better. The beer was a lot better than the painting. Hey, not attached, there will be more painting tomorrow. / Painted over
