I did this piece of art for my design class. I had always wanted to use Coffee for something. Which I have seen other artist use in their own paintings (or Tea) I have been fond of portraits and been trying to practice on drawing people. which I still find myself fighting with cause everyone has different features but it is fun.
I used a photo reference for this painting. I found the photo on google and I don't know who the original owner is so if you guys know then please tell me so I can give credit to the original artist. Even though I used a photo reference I tried to not make the girl look the same. I tried to alter it a bit.
It only took me one day to do this painting and it is a big one the paper is 22"x30" cold press watercolor paper.
Medium: Coffee, coffee grains, India Ink, and a bit of black Ecoline liquid watercolor on a 22"x30" Strathmore 400 series 140 lbs watercolor paper
