Day 2: strawberry cocktail, anyone?

AEDMart 2

Drinks at Aisle, 18 x 13 cm, oil on canvas board. Available on Etsy.

When I’m not busy staring out my studio window at sunsets, I’m somewhere in Edinburgh diving face-first into the food and drink offerings of this city. As a travel blogger I learned to start photographing my restaurant meals for posterity long ago. As I search my photo archives for painting inspiration, often these food (or drink) photos catch my eye. Some delicacies, of course, look better in paint than others.

This painting was inspired by a delicious dessert cocktail I had at Aisle, a very fun restaurant serving creative food and drink. I’m thinking colorful cocktails could become a new favorite subject of mine.

It’s Art Every Day Month! Towards the end of the month, these new daily paintings will be available to purchase in my Etsy shop. Check out Leah’s blog for more information about Art Every Day Month, or follow the discussion on Twitter with the #aedm2014 hashtag.

    Wow, this looks delicious! Your vibrant colours are delightful – I think you are onto something here as I’m sure there are enough colourful cocktails to make a fairly substantial series. Of course you have to order them at a few different places to make sure you get the most aesthetically pleasing ones… could be a tough job!

      My thoughts exactly, Cindy – this would be one fun series to research! It’s a tough job, finding the most exquisite cocktails in Edinburgh, but someone has to do it.
