In a series titled “Classic Cocktails”, Stroube imagines cocktail drinks with a renaissance twist. He imagines how great paint masters of the past would have painted the cocktails of today. The cocktails include Lime Rickey, Blood Mary, Sangria and Bellini with each image shot and processed to appear like they’d been painted by iconic Golden Age artists.

“As we layered the images, we ensured that each value of light is pulled and twisted to highlight and achieve the rich Chiaroscuro brilliance that are often evident in Golden Age painting,” Stroube explains.

Even though Stroube captured the images on his camera, he makes them look as realistically painted as possible and from our view he seems to nail it.
