Personal Projects

Personal Projects: Coffee

I did another personal project on one of my favourite topics: COFFEE. At university, I was part of the student blog Cardiff Coffee which was part of a social media postgrad course. I love coffee, and have done a few coffee tasting seminars. I enjoy a cup of freshly made coffee at home, especially on a lazy Sunday, when nothing else is on.

This project takes Coffee as the subject of two mixed-media paintings (ink, collage). I wanted to work on some patterns and how to create shapes with repeating lines, dots, and other shapes. I especially want to explore outlines of items. I find it not always necesary to outline items with black. Most often I think it is enought to just have a good enought contrast to the background or neighbouring items.

Here are the two paintings:
