Coffee, Coffee Everywhere and Not a Drop to Drink



Micron ink pens (03 and 02) and #2 and 5B pencil on Caslon 65lb sketch paper (5.5x8 I think) in response to a prompt at Sketchfest [link] was scanned, printed on watercolor paper (some cold press ) and painted it with coffee (really!) That was very pale, so I washed it over with some watercolor as well. Way fun.

Then I tried to get a digital file for y'all.... wow, was that hard! My scanner over-exposed it. My camera couldn't bring in the colors right either, but it was closer. I have a LOT to learn. Then of course the boater was even lower res than the print... Ugh. So this file is the closest I can get to the *actual* painting. I tweaked colors in Photoshop (ugh) and layered in the boater on top from the original sketch scan (oof), except for the ripples (ack)... well. Enough with the details! Enjoy! (I hope!)

This edition is the cropped version. To see the full painted one (where it turned out on the page and so on, you can jump over to it at Sketchfest yourself [link] .
