7" x 10" Mixed Media Drawing on Antique Dictionary
Is it Whisky or Whiskey? I'm not sure and even this old, dictionary page lists both as correct. I have to admit that I'm not a fan of this drink but I can't argue with how beautiful it looks in a glass or a fancy decanter. I also think there is something nostalgic about this concoction. There isn't a western film out there that doesn't involve a dusty cowboy strolling up to a bar and ordering a shot of whiskey.
Regardless of its appeal, I thought a whiskey page would be a good companion with my bar series. I know there are lots of whiskey lovers out there so I hope someone will want to take this drawing home. I really enjoyed exploring all the colors I could use in this piece. The liquid permitted me to add rich reds, oranges, yellows and deep burgundy.
