Ecollustration of the Week: Coffee Aroma

Mmmmm I love the aroma of coffee. I could smell it for hours, funny enough I don't really like the flavor. So instead of drinking from it, I decided to  paint with it. My brother told me to sketch a parakeet for him and an owl. I decided to use those sketches to try this technique out. The texture depended on how much coffee you put into the water. The difference between the coffee and the tea is of course the opacity, but with the coffee my room was instantly  covered by that warm smell of coffee. I loved the results very much.
P.S: If you are wondering what brand of coffee I used "Gabriela Premium Instant Coffee"
