Coffee, Coffee Everywhere and Not a Drop To Drink by Kir Talmage

Coffee, Coffee Everywhere and Not a Drop To Drink
by Kir Talmage

Prompt: Coffee, Coffee Everywhere and Not a Drop To Drink
prompted by: Google Queen, during Sketch Fest #26 (July, 2012)

This artist has posted at least one finished version of this piece!

How should I add the coffee color? Digitally? Watercolor? Hmmm.... This is Micron ink pens (03 and 02) and #2 and 5B pencil on Caslon 65lb sketch paper (5.5x8 I think). So... color this one? Or color a print? Or color the digital file? Or leave as is? Do advise! Update:: Printed on random watercolor paper, and paint is drying now. Will upload finished when it is. Fun! Pencil sketch has (not surprisingly) much finer lines and texture visible, in the cup especially.

     Kir Talmage replied to this: How fun!

mikka says: Watercolors -- or coffee! -- on a print sounds like fun to me. I don't know what you'd enjoy trying, though. ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Coffee! Coffee on a print! I love it! **must find the right sort of paper and try it in the printer... should be dry enough by morning when I have more coffee... ** Ooho! Fun!!**scurries off again**

Elizabeth Barrette says: This is so cute. I love the detail on the spoon handle. ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Thanks! We have a spoon kind of like that ... :)

Ellen Million says: Oooo! I love this! I think the position on the page is perfect, randomly. I like mikka's idea of coffee staining it. ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Thanks! Yeah, when I started, I wanted the eye to be drawn off-kilter a bit. It's more off on the page, but I needed to crop it a bit in the scan. I've now got a print on some random watercolor paper (my printer won't do custom paper sizes! AUGH! So I had to fake it when I was sleepy. Sheesh!), which is off center in *another* way. Heh. But tomorrow: coffee... and then maybe scissors :P I wonder where the horizon line really is... Hmmm. At least I have more paper to fake it with...
