Coffee and Cigarettes by NicksPencil Coffee and Cigarettes by NicksPencil
This is my attempt at a painting using coffee instead of paint.

Size is 8" x 8" on watercolour paper.

Materials: 2B pencil for original sketch, sanguine fineliner for details in eyelashes and eyebrows, a few dabs of white acrylic for highlights and, of course, lots of COFFEE.
As always, many thanks to all who are kind enough to view, comment, critique or fave my work - your support is most appreciated :iconbummy2:

I really like this a lot Nick! Very creative with how you've used the frame and of course the combination of coffee + cigarettes is great! Lovely execution too!

am always blown away with the finish that traditional artists are capable of giving that we try placing textures in order to copy the same result
