The Charcoal Sketch
It all begins with a blank canvas and a charcoal sketch, outlining the intricate details of the Weller Whiskey Bottle. This initial step captures the essence of the subject matter, setting the stage for what’s to come. I’m planning each whiskey painting to be able to be stand alone as single paintings and prints or together as a collection, and so the composition of each one can complement the others. Take a look at “Buffalo Trace” to see how the composition both differs and compliments.
A crucial layer in oil painting, the imprimatura adds depth and richness to the artwork. Warm tones are carefully applied in a thin wash of transparent red oxide oil paint and Gambol, creating a canvas that sets the stage for future layers.
The Layering Process
Each layer is then added, starting with basic shapes and then working down to details.
A Day at Buffalo Trace Distillery: Where Whiskey Meets Art
But the journey of “Weller Whiskey Bottle” doesn’t stop in the studio. I had the exciting opportunity to bring the canvas to Buffalo Trace Distillery to paint live in front of guests. The painting came to life amid the very essence of the whiskey-making process.
Perfect for Whiskey Collectors, Home Bars, and Offices
Whether you’re a devoted whiskey collector, a bar owner looking to elevate your speakeasy-themed establishment, or simply an art aficionado with an appreciation for fine craftsmanship, “Weller” is a welcome addition to your space.
