My favorite is still the kitty - the coffee colors in that are uneven and give it a wonderful texture.
I keep thinking... how can I use your technique on a picture... But then I shy away from doing anything because your coffee pictures are just so lovely... and I think it will take me years to come close to your technique.
But in saying that, did you put the black watercolor on first, or after the coffee? And how did coffee grounds come into play?
It's my fav too so far, thank you! I suck at explaining things but yeah I put the black afterwards because watercolor is easier to blend if the surface is already moisturized with coffee. So I start with just coffee and carefully 'go darker' by adding watercolor in, keeping in mind how dark I wanna go with it! So that I wouldn't overdo it. (Like in this piece I think I did. :/ ) I'm not sure what you mean by the second question, but I only used coffee grounds on the "Minho" piece, and then I just added them afterwards to see the ending result.. I didn't know what was gonna happen. XD
Mäkin oon tällänen perfektionisti omien piirrustuksieni suhteen et pieniki virhe ärsyttää -.- sen takia toi kahvi ei ehkä oo paras mahollinen maalaus tekniikka mulle :,D mutta varmaanki seuraavaks kyllä kokeilen tehä kahvilla ku nää sun kahvi työt on näyttäny niin hienoilta O__o
Kokeile ihmeessä!! Mä haluun nähä mitä saat sillä aikaan. Ehkä meille perfectionisteille on ihan tervettä joskus käyttää jotain tekniikka mitä ei hallita täysin. 8D Ite tykkään ainaki tästä kahveilusta vaikka tähän työhön turhauduinki heh!
Because I feel that I might had 'bite off more than I can chew' yet with my skills, you know? :/ I wanted to try something more complicated, as the previous one was more blunt and minimalistic.. and that worked as the advance for it, and for this medium! This time, I feel that there's too much going on and I'm not so happy with his face.. I appreciate your feedback tho! <3
