Remember this painting I started last.... May?!? Well, I finally got back around to working on it! Now that I'm finished with custom paintings, I'm back to finishing up some paintings I've put in the back of the studio closet. :) It's been fun to see this one evolve.... a lot! (You'll see all the color changes before I landed on red here.) Last week I decided to add texture to the background with Liquitex Modeling Paste and a palette knife. Then I swiped dark brown over the texture.
Next up? I need to decide on something to add to the center of the coffee cup. What do y'all think? A creamer swirl? Coffee "bubbles" or reflections? something unexpected? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
