For some time now I have wanted to try my hand at a coffee painting after seeing works by fellow bubbler friend Dianne . Looking at my portfolio I thought a fun work of art for my children’s collection would be a good idea, before I concentrate on a pet commission. So meet Petal the Pig and Dolly the Duck who are farmyard friends.
I began with Petal on her own, (as you can see in the description) painted on a pale wishy washy background and thought she would look more stunning on black. With limited time I took a shortcut and cut her out and pasted her on to black pastel paper, but before doing this, thought she looked a little lonely so popped her friend Dolly on her back.
Which version do you prefer I wonder?
“Come on Dolly jump on my back
Let’s go play along the dirt track.
There’s lots of puddles where we can get muddy,
A great day out with my best buddy!
Then when night calls and the sun is done,
We’ll find our way home after hours of fun”!
