Oils on canvas (50 × 40cm)

I found this quaint old coffee grinder in a shop in Miltown Malbay, County Clare and could not resist doing a still life painting. Cute cups, tea sets and all kinds of lovely items can be found in the shop.

And, of course, being a coffee lover, the subject matter kept me refilling the cup. Not good when you are painting as too much caffeine gives you a shaky hand!!

    Amazing my dear, so sharp it looks like a photo, excellent perspective

  • Thank you dear Byron! It was difficult to keep a steady hand after all that caffeine!

    Where’s the plug, mine has a plug. LOL This is gorgeous Avril, I would love to have an old crank style grinder. The painting is really first class.

  • LOL… no plug on this one Jim! Just elbow grease! I always wanted an old style coffee grinder and was really pleased to get it! I also bought a white one like this (they were REALLY cheap – only 4.95euro each). When I am in the mood again, I will paint the white one too…

    What a great painting Avril, I love the shine on the cup and especially on the grinder, it’s really very skilfully done! Amazing, hope to see more of these still life paintings from you.

  • Thank you dear Arie! I have a few that I am busy with but still life is very time consuming, so I try to do a little bit at a time.
