Cloudy Coffee Squirrel

I went a little coffee bananas in this piece. I got frustrated at looking at the painting for hours and hours so I went a little wild and threw coffee around which slowly built up these cloud like layers, I then stood back and saw that it was good! I then preceded to inject some fiery tones in with pastel, watercolour and ink.

The initial composition before the coffee layers and finishing touches

I normally chuck an illustration away before it’s even dry if I’m fed up with it, but this painting has taught me to be a little more risky with image making, it helped having an idol such as Rubis Firenos who works wonders with her coffee creations. Due to how pleased I was with the continuous line drawing of the squirrel I made a run of lino prints which will be featured soon.
