Coffee Anyone?

Yes please. I used a composite of two colors to make my black for this painting; Ultramarine Blue and Quinacridone Magenta and other than the background color, that composite and white are the only colors. I think the less colors is more works very well for this subject. I like the finished work... it makes me want to pour a cup.


  1. Yummy! I like that you explain how you got the color black; the finished product (the actual coffee) looks thick--like it holds the consistency of a fluid, rich cup o' joe. Lovely!

    1. Thanks Amber Laura for your colorful comments! I wonder if us coffee drinkers like all coffee paintings? So glad you are liking them.
