This is my third Coffee painting that I’ve done recently. I think I will do at least a couple more. It’s been really fun! I hope to put this painting in the art gallery some time next month after the art show. This was created in Coffee, Watercolor and mixed media.
Please contact me if interested in the original. This picture is available as a fine art print, greeting card and cellphone case, just click on the picture above. Thank you for looking.
This painting may seem simple enough, but I faced some challenging moments in it’s development. Watercolor is one of my favorite media’s to use. You can work with it and spread it in most of the areas you want before it drys. But if you don’t make sure it drys before applying another layer, it mixes in too much. As I paint I’m learning more through my mistakes. 😉
I’m a great color fan, and love most of the colors I put into this painting. The final touch was suggested to me by my Dad, who told me to add yellow to the background which tied in all the yellow that I had put into the flower and bird. He told me that the color of the background looked too cool and that the yellow would warm the colors up. And you know what? He was right! My Dad sure knows his stuff!
This was painted on a 140 lb. watercolor card, dimensions: 5″x6 7/8″ ( 12.7 x 17.4 cm)
I am happy to announce, that the original of this painting has recently been sold!
I thought that I would try this technique that I had seen. I first took some coffee and poured it on my paper. I then spread it around and dried it. After it was dry, I drew my horse with charcoal pencils. The background helped me envision where my horse would be placed. This was very fun and so easy! I think everyone should give it a try! 😉
