Thought I'd jump in this weekend. Here is where I am at the two hour mark. Doing this in coffee so I have to let areas dry before going back into them so this is abit slow going. 18X24

WOW!! coffee never looked so good and those lilies probably never smelled so good. I have always enjoyed the aroma of coffee more than the taste. Love it!!

Going to call this one finished.

I have been lurking and watching, waiting for the finish! This is awesome. Do you paint using coffee from a drip machine, a Keurig, French press or instant?
05-04-2015, 01:03 AM
Coffee Art! Stunning work!
05-04-2015, 11:33 AM
Thanks Y'all. :) Valri I use instant coffee when I paint. That way I can mix it in values from light to very dark.
05-04-2015, 11:35 AM
I love coffee and I love this! Final version just sings, especially with the drops or droplets to enhance. Your values are perfect.
05-04-2015, 12:43 PM
tis really a gorgeous finish...love those little droplets..what a finish ! tyree:wave: :wink2:
05-04-2015, 12:45 PM
Thanks. Adding the water droplets was really an afterthought. But I think they worked out really well. Fun to do as well. :) Just place a drop of water on the coffee and watch the magic.

Just awesome -- the tones and the painting and COFFEE! Thanks so much for sharing as a WIP -- very helpful and inspirational!
05-04-2015, 03:29 PM
Very good You ve got great values with coffee I like myself painting with coffee I reboil it to get darker darks
05-04-2015, 04:27 PM
Thanks gang. Robert I tried brewing it a couple of times but couldn't get it dark enough. Esp. when painting on canvas. With the instant I can mix it up like mud and go really dark.
05-04-2015, 04:40 PM
Wow. Beautiful. Coffee, who knew. :)

Amazing! It's very lovely! Still can't believe it's coffee!
05-05-2015, 02:22 PM
Thanks. :) Yep... coffee... 100%
05-05-2015, 09:27 PM
Stunning, absolutely stunning !! The line work alone is so very beautiful, and then to add the gradient of rich colour... and then the inspiration of the droplets !!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:
( will the coffee stay true over time, or is some fading to be expected as the years pass ?)
05-05-2015, 09:50 PM
Laure thanks. From what I have read the coffee stays true over time. The ones that I do on canvas (which are much thicker) I spray with with Lacquer to protect them. Because the coffee can be washed off with a wet rag. :)

Excellent painting. Really beautiful.

Glad I came back to check the finished product. Absolutely beautiful! I got to try the water droplet thing one of these days.
