Experiments with Coffee Jan 2018

OK, its well known I'll try anything once and I just soak up new techniques all the time, so when I heard about coffee as a medium for painting, I jumped right in there and gave it a go. It was fascinating! A lot of trial and error, but I did like the sepia painting results. It was a fine line to get the real contrasts; I had to go very light and shade up, and then put those darks right against the bright whites to get anything to pop. It's something I would go back to and experiment more with!

This page shows the first four paintings I did with the coffee. There was a fifth that I was not as happy with. Neat, huh?

The Kraft +Plus Jan 2018 challenge of caffeine seemed to shout out to me and remind me of all this art experimentation I did before my amazing christmas break. So that's what I've done my page on. I was inspired by the wood and coffee browns and wanted to keep the page as simple as possible with wood/metal and coffee. I really enjoyed doing this.
