Coffee portraits

Tuesday, 1 March 2011

Still trying to draw a decent protait, i tried to draw some faces from my computerscreen. I made a made a rough sketch with pencil and then added some colour with coffee.

Next i tried drawing portraits direct with coffee. I have never before painted with a brush, i always use a pencil and a pen. I thought that i would find drawing with a paint brush very difficult, but to my surprise it turned out to be not. And it works so much faster than using pencil and pen!
Of course, nons of the people that i portrait would recognise themselves in the result, but hey, i have only been practicing for two days.
Here are some of the portraits that i made:

Next i tried to draw some of my FaceBook friends in this way.
