Coffee coloured drawings

Friday, 31 December 2010

I love to drink coffee. Espresso, made with a peculator. Yesterday i discovered that i can use coffee to colour my drawings. I am not good with colours, and i like the effcet of just this one subtle colour. And i sure love the diea that i can use coffee as paint. The only problem is that the paper becomes three dimensional. And somehow the scanner refuses to recognise all the nuances that the coffee has in the originals. But you can see these on the exhibition, of course!

I prefer to make abstract drawings, but sometimes the drawings seem to have a will of their own. Last night it were cartoonlike characters:
