daily painting | coffee-stained passion flower

This was a project that smelled great. I soaked watercolor paper in a pan of very strong coffee (happily messy; grounds went everywhere). I wanted to try drawing/painting on the dark, blotchy paper with different media, so I experimented with charcoal, pastels, and pen and ink. My favorite was watercolor (kind of an obvious choice, for me, duh). I tried a loose painting, then played with a white gel pen (fabulous fun!). May do more. Might not. It’s a bit rough to put up for sale, but if you must have it, pop me an email!
