Coffee Painting

My good artist friend recently encouraged me to try out coffee painting on watercolour paper, and I have to say I really enjoy the process.

First I mixed up some fine ground coffee in a small jar and added a bit of warm water to mix.   Then, using my one inch flat brushes, I brushed a small amount of water over the whole piece of watercolour paper to start with a wet wash.  Then the fun of adding coffee begins.  

With this particular coffee painting I woke up one morning and painted the first thing that came to mind.  These mountain lake scenes seem to come up a lot in my more detailed work.  

Hope you enjoy my first of many coffee painting studies!

Maker’s Series Feature

I had the recent pleasure of working with Vancouver Island photographer Jordan Dyck for her new project highlighting people pursuing their craft, and the environments that inspire them.  I was thrilled when she contacted me to be one of her subjects to focus on.  Here are a few photos from our time spent together at my studio.  

For more photos from her project A Maker’s Series find her on Instagram @joordanrenee.
