She paints using bear instead of colors

Can someone pain using Beer? American artist Karen Eland is an exception, she paints using Beer instead of colors. As reported in the Telegraph, she has made several artistic drawings using her Beer Painting.

She says: “I use stouts and porters to create the paintings, with sometimes lagers or lighter beers to do the light areas. Sometimes I like the beer to evaporate awhile, condensing the colour. I use watercolour paper; the beer is too liquid-y to work on canvas unless I add a painting medium. Depending on the level of detail, a medium size beer painting takes about 2 days to complete. Lots of gradual layers are built up to create the final painting.”
