Going with the flow

I bought some pretty paper at the craft store a while back. There’s something about playing with paper and cutting out shapes that always gets me inspired.

Happy Sunday, friends! ๐Ÿ’š

These pretty patterns and warm colors inspired today’s art selection. ๐Ÿ˜Š I haven’t decided what I’m going to do with these shapes yet but I’m sure they will find their way into an upcoming project soon.

I was playing in my sketchbook with a large flat brush and painted this landscape with just two colors:
Prussian Blue and Quinacridone Burnt Orange

I’m amazed at how many different colors and tones you can get when painting with just two colors.

Coffee painting - Roses

These roses were painted about a year ago with espresso powder and water. Painting with coffee is a lot of fun and this is one of my favorites.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Keep playing and having fun. Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

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! ๐Ÿ’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.ย  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.

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! ๐Ÿ’š โ˜•๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜โ˜•๏ธ

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! ๐Ÿ’šย โ˜•๏ธ


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! ๐Ÿ’š
