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

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

Prompt: Coffee, Coffee Everywhere and Not a Drop To Drink
prompted by: Google Queen, during Sketch Fest #27 (August, 2012)

This is a finished version of a sketch!

Well... I scanned the sketch, printed it on watercolor paper (some cold press ) and painted it. Way fun. Then I tried to get a digital file for y'all.... wow, was that hard! My scanner over-exposed it. My camera couldn't bring in the colors right either, but it was closer. I have a LOT to learn. Then of course the boater was even lower res than the print... Ugh. So this file is the closest I can get to the *actual* painting. I tweaked colors in Photoshop (ugh) and layered in the boater on top from the original sketch scan (oof), except for the ripples (ack)... well. Enough with the details! Enjoy! (I hope!)
