End-of-the-year Coffee Date

End-of-the-year Coffee Date - student project

I was having coffee with a friend and I suddenly asked her, "Hey, can I paint my coffee? I have just watched this class about painting coffee with watercolors." She agreed. We just turned our coffee date into a doodle date which was a lot more fun.

Bad news is that it ocurred to me when I was already halfway through my coffee and I missed all of the foam of my capuccino, but the good news is that it showed really interesting shades rather than just a whole lot of white. In this picture, I've already finished my coffee before finishing the shadows of the cup and the plate.

I wasn't happy at all with that picture to post on IG, so I waited the next day to have better light. I would have preferred to have the whites really bright but I was losing the creaminess of the coffee. So, this would do.

This project was really fun and I am looking forward to paint more coffee in 2017!
