One of my earlier digital works when I was trying out the different tools on my old Artrage program. Here the chalk tool was used in an attempt to give this piece a more mellow feeling.
I’m sure this subject is something most of us indulge in during our strenuous artistic endeavours at the easel/computer/drawing board…the coffee break.
I know I couldn’t survive without it!! :)

    I love how you always manage the smallest details. I like the reflection of the coffee in the stainless steel. Planning on pulling an allnighter on another masterpiece are you?

  • Thanks Jodie…maybe not an all-nighter, but what I’m working on now sustains me through those long hours of capturing the smallest details…almost as much as the coffee (and that’s a hint…hehehe). Get ready to feast your eyes (and another…lol!). Anyway, I hope you’re hungry for it…ok, ok…enough hints!! :))))
