Happy Monday loves, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Coffee is always a good idea especially on Monday morning, right? Here is another coffee illustration I painted earlier today and I wanted to share step by step of my work process (you can find more coffee paintings in this post).
I usually start with light pencil sketchThen I start applying coffee-pretty similar to watercolor painting process- always start with light areas When light areas are painted, I do darker coffee mix in a spoon (you don’t need a lot of it) and do some dark lines for the contrast.
And to make the illustration more interesting I add some coffee splatters. I take big brush, dip it in a coffee so there is a large glob and flick my arm until I get nice splatters. Thanks a lot for reading and I would love to hear about your work process!

“When in doubt, wear red.” Bill Blass
I can’t agree more with this statement! Every time I wear red or paint gorgeous red gowns, I feel a great boost of energy and self esteem. This illustration was inspired by stunning Michael Costello gown (you can find the video of work in progress on my Instagram).
I always post my looks for Monday Bloom linkup, but I’m still in a 4th of July mood and thought that this colorful sketch would be perfect!
