So beautifully observed. You make it so gorgeous, it tempts me to become a whiskey drinker rather than a wine sipper!
That's a beaut and so was yesterday's
Julian, this is stunning!
Hi Julian beautiful colour on the whiskey. The glass is excellent , all around great painting. Thanks Craig
that is a mighty fine looking glass of whiskey then again, i've never seen a BAD glass of whiskey best thanksgiving wishes to all
Julian, This painting is absolutely spectacular! Thanks so much, Anita
That is a beauty!
Dear Julian, I always enjoy our work. This is one of the best, especially the glass. I am enjoying my scotch and would love this painting, however, it is all ready over my budget! Best to you and your family during this holiday season. Keep up your wonderful work. All the best, Joan
Julian, this one was approved by four generations of Julian fans!
Now, you are being a magician! I don't think I have even seen a glass painted that well! (Please excuse me Edouard Manet and Dutch Masters of the past.) I'm not a whiskey drinker, but this makes me want to try it out. Honestly, Julian, you have a great eye.
Excellent !
Dear Julian, now this is just.... I am speechless, if only for a short while.There is an infinite world in the reflections and mirages of that glass, the quince glimpsed and multiplied through the facets.I am traveling on a Grand Tour of painterly magic!That lonely night with the lemon has resulted in an artistic catharsis. My God, you are good. Anna H.
I admire the way you employ your paintbrush with skill to carve out the glass. Then you artfully use light to underline the shape of the glass and give importance to the colour of the whiskey. Bravo
This is absolutely superb! I don't know what to remark on first .... the glass? ... the transparency? ...the color of the whisky? You have even made the glass look and FEEL substantial to hold in one's hand! Love the curves of the glass too. A wonderful job!
