Guinness and Peanuts (sold)

Guinness and Peanuts,  oil on linen, 5" X 7", 2013
A freshly poured Guinness has a creamy, frothy look. I went through several cans of the 'draught' version to try and come close to the right look. This picture is a little darker than the actual painting which shows that cloudy caramel gradation pretty well.
This piece is destined for the May Matter of Taste show at Brackenwood Gallery in Langley.
