I spent a lovely morning amongst friends working on a project for my adult daughter’s room. Amongst her many prized possessions on display, she has a Nespresso machine. Yes, you read right, a Nespresso machine. It’s just fantastic, I use it every day, at least once! We have started many a day this year with a coffee sitting on her bed, and naturally we started calling it ‘Issy’s Cafe’.
We thought a sign above it would be fun. So here’s the progress I made on it today
I’m using St Cuthbert’s Mill Watercolour paper, Schmincke watercolours and Copic multiliners.
In the section bottom right, you may be able to make out a faint drawing of a Coffee pot, I’ll be coming back to that and outlining that. I used watercolours to create the corner of colour. I wet the watercolour paper liberally before adding pigment and letting the paint do it’s own thing.
I still have a lot to do on both the font and the drawing top left. I have outlined the Persian style drawing top left with different Copic Multiliners. Here’s a closeup of the drawing.
It’s a fun project, very different from my acrylic and oil painting processes, which I enjoy just as much.
I will post updates to the project as I do them. I don’t get to my art every day, but hopefully I can get to it on the weekend.
