A4 size Coffee and charcoal

I haven’t done any coffee paintings for a while. Our monthy challenge for my local art society is to produce an artwork with the theme of “gate”.
I have spent most of the last few weeks looking for a suitable gate for my piece. I loved the character of this old gate.

Original sold

    How very beautiful! Good idea to add charcoal!

  • Thankyou Liz. It’s always hard to get the coffee paintings to scan well. It’s the first time I have used charcoal with coffee, but I quite liked the effect.

    I like the character of this old gate too,you have really captured it…It looks like it has had a very useful life,I imagine kids swinging on it .

  • Thankyou! I was a bit worried about putting it on here because it was a bit of a rush job for the challenge. I think that helps with the rustic look though. :)
