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