A4 size coffee, ink and watercolour pencil on canson watercolour paper
I’ve never been very happy with my first coffee version of Ryan so this is a new version created with a slightly different coffee painting technique. I was finding that a black pen was way too harsh for a portrait so this time I’ve used a burnt umber watercolour pencil instead. A tiny bit of black ink as also been mixed with some of the coffee for some of the darker areas. I’ve found that if I make the coffee too dark and sticky, it has a tendancy to run in high humidity.
