Seattle Coffee [Coffee Painting]

Seattle Coffee (c)
5×7 coffee painting of Ampersand Gessoboard.

This was my first experiment using coffee and acrylic mediums.  I think it came out decently enough for the first try.  I didn’t like the gloss medium as much as I thought I would.  I may try mixing both the gel and the gloss next time to see if I get more of what I was looking for.  I’m also not sure if I like the gessoboard or not.  It’s a very smooth surface with was nice for the first layer, but I found it difficult to work with for the top layers.  I’ll have to try it again and see.  I may need a canvas with more texture.

Anyway,  I wanted this to be a little bit more of a looser painting and have something to do with Seattle.  So, I thought of a cup spilling out into a cityscape of Seattle.  My first wash wash really watery, and when the drips happened I kind of went with it.  Seems to have added a nice little touch to it.  Some of them went a little longer than I wanted, but oh well.  It was a fun little practice piece, and I have some ideas for next time!
