Coffee painting again

When I started painting and playing with coffee I didn’t realize how much fun it was going to be. I have a few more coffee paintings to share today.

Happy Sunday, friends! πŸ’š

 

Coffee Birdie painting

I sketched a little bird in pencil and then started painting with coffee. I tried not to overcomplicate the feathers and made sure to leave some white spots here and there. I love this little guy, so soft and sweet…

 

Coffee Palette

Espresso powder for baking works well for me.

Simply adding a little water to a small amount of powder and then you have a nice coffee mix. The espresso has been on my palette for a while, so this time I just sprayed a mist of water on it to rewet it.

Coffee Roses painting

I’ve been working on roses and decided to paint a few more with coffee. I used two round #6 brushes for this painting.Β  One brush for color and the other for clean water. The second clean brush was handy for extra blending or lifting of color.

Roses:
I started with the center rose on bottom, then added a rose on each side.
It needed more, so I continued and stacked a few more smaller roses on top.

Leaves:
I started with some large leaf shapes and tried to balance things out on each side of my roses. I still wanted more, so for a little variety and movement I added some smaller leaves on the outer edges.

I hope you enjoy seeing my art and are inspired to do more of what you love.

Until next time, share a smile and have fun!

Coffee Floral painting

A little coffee floral to share with you today.

Hope your day is wonderful, friends! πŸ’š β˜•οΈ

Coffee floral under painting

I used my large round (#14) and small liner brush(#2) for this coffee under painting. I am able to get a lot of variety with these two brushes and I love this combination.

Coffee takes a while to dry, especially the dark thicker areas. I recommend letting the painting dry overnight.

 

Coffee Floral painting with ink detail

11x 15 inch Coffee Floral

I decided to add some fun with a little doodle sketching like I’ve done in previous watercolor florals. For this painting I used both Micron and Uni-ball deluxe pens.

I’m having more and more fun experimenting and creating coffee art. πŸ˜β˜•οΈ

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent.

Painting leaves with coffee

This week I decided to try another coffee painting. I have some leaves and vines to share with you today.

Happy Sunday, friends! πŸ’šΒ β˜•οΈ

 

Coffee painting - leaves under painting

Using a #12 Round brush I painted big playful leaf shapes with a light shade of coffee.

After it dried, I used a smaller #6 Round brush and painted some playful vines using a stronger coffee mix.

The coffee used for this painting is a mix of espresso powder (for baking) with a tiny bit water. I should probably try using instant coffee next time around.

Tip: Coffee takes a long time to dry. When layering as I did above, make sure you allow plenty of time for drying. I let the first layer of big leaves dry overnight.

Coffee leaves - painting and ink sketch

I used a Sepia Micron 01 pen to sketch more vines and leaves on top of my coffee painting. Since the leaves were shades of brown, I thought my Sepia pen would work well here.

It is always fun to play and see where the art takes you.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. I started this blog two years ago to share what I love and inspire others. Thank you for following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on! πŸ’š
