Java by NicksPencil Java by NicksPencil
This is my second attempt at a painting using coffee instead of paint.

Size is 9" x 9" on watercolour paper.

Materials: Just 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 can imagine! :giggle: It's often fun to work more freely and loose. <3

It sounds interesting. Unfortunately the smell of coffee makes me feel sick. :( So i'm not sure trying that would be a great idea for me, however, I think I may be able to create a similar effect with my water colors.

It is very nice and it is amazing that you used just coffee.
Why do I spend a lot of time choosing brands of watercolour? :)
