Another kick at the can


In honour of St. Patrick's Day, I've been doing a few related paintings. The other day I tried this Guinness can but wasn't overly happy with the attempt. On one hand it was too fussy, on the other, I hadn't taken the time to really get it right. So today I revisited it. I still have a ways to go but there's a fair improvement from Saturday.

Lines are crisper and the lettering is amazing! Congrats on pushing yourself to try again Kim!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm toasting you with this comment today! I like this can a little better, too - but the other one was great with more going on in the painting. Here I can soak up what's really going on with the can. I also really like the blue ribbon of a line between the ground and the background. Now you can drink it. On this day, it's 5 o'clock everywhere!
