The Martini Cocktail #1 Series|Painting Blue Cocktail, 2022, Gouache & Watercolors on Deckle edged Oleo paper, Hand painted/drawn Lettering, 36.75" x 24.25", ©Julie Castillo 2023.
This is the first in a series of cocktail images. "The Martini Cocktail #1 in a Series", of course was inspired by James Bond and my husband, not to mention the actual cocktail! It is a cocktail that is both celebratory and legendary. Just looking at the cocktail in a beautiful martini glass is inspiration. The reflections, olives on a shiny stainless steel spear releasing their oils, chilled liquid in a chilled glass that is beginning to sweat. Yum! Shaken not stirred, little ice crystals formed. It just begs to be painted! I also felt the desire to recreate the time when cocktails were romantic, a retro look. Much like the antique art I created for Ralph Lauren in the 1990's. Gouache was my medium then. Enjoy and thank you for viewing!
