FAQ : What is O Ka-Fée ?

O Ka-Fée is the term concerning all my paintings done with coffee. It concerns the way of painting and of obtaining textures with coffee. It's about projections of coffee, which once in stains on the sheet, undergo injections of pigments. (Powder, colorex, watercolor.)

Textures realized by coffee by drying (more or less sweetened) are unique, they are more interesting than those realized with water.
The coffee is a rather complex medium has to master, it's necessary to know its reactions to be able to manipulate it with pigments, we learn it every day.

O Ka-Fée also concern my graphic style and the whole universe which gets free of it. It's for that the term is protected by copyright. :)


Please, respect my universe and work.

How do you manage to the make the white lines in the ink? do you simply paint around it the whole time???

Nice, je préfère (de peu certes) cette version à la suivante (ce jugement ne s'arrête qu'à la forme de la tête du dragon, donc c'est un goût très personnel). En revanche je préfère les couleurs de l'autre

J'apprécie vraiment le choix des couleurs, la composition et surtout le lieu où tu as placé chaque couleurs (par exemple, le bleu canard et le vert avec le rose pêche saumon à gauche) ^^.

Merci ! :)

C'est parfois sympa de pouvoir mêler des couleurs très contrastées ensemble, ça permet de chouettes résultats et c'est super a expérimenter !

Par contre, je n'avais pas la même vision du bleu canard, tiens je vais revoir mes bases moi ^^

Embrymandre Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Arf, c'est sans doute moi qui ai fait une erreur... ><. Fin les tons de bleu canard sont très liés avec le vert ; vert émeraude...

Et oui, je pense pareil que toi : selon le résultat voulu et l'atmosphère voulu, des couleurs très contrastées ensemble, c'est cool! Et à l'inverse, des couleurs très proche, pas uni mais très proche, ça peut être cool aussi! :)

Et de rien! :)

C'est très joli. Très simple mais très bien réussit. L'eau est très belle ainsi que le mouvement fluide du dragon.
J'aime bien cette impression qu'il se dilue dans l'eau, c'est sympa ^^

Il tient quelque chose dans ses griffes, qu'est ce que c'est ?

O___o je ne sais que dire, je crois qu'avec toi, j'ai déjà usé tout les adjectifs de la langue française que j'avais sous la main XD, alors je dirais AMAZING XDD
Non vraiment, c'est juste super magnifique, j'aime beaucoup ton dragon, et l'effet des vagues, de l'eau (rahhh je n'imagine pas le travail passé dessus), c'est juste énorme

Le travail n'est pas si long en soit même, une fois qu'on sait comment s'y prendre. Mais je pense que je pourrai faire beaucoup mieux, si je travaillais sur de plus grandes pièces. Mais j'aime enchaîner les travaux...^^"

Merci encore ! Moi aussi j'ai plus de termes à la fin XD

Gorgeous work and I have never heard of an art form using coffee to manipulate the pigment... (Unless I count the good old faking the age of paper by coffee)...

Looks amazing! Keep up the great work!
