Completely Caffinated

What can I say? love this stuff.
I'm not even a snob, I like good coffee but I'll drink anything.
My favorite is a red eye-regular coffee with a shot of espresso.
But I try not to do that too often as I can become a little unbearable and jumpy. 
I mostly drink that if I'm super tired.
Look, I'm posting my sketch  as well!
I sketched this out of copy paper then transferred it to my watercolor book,
which is something I hardly ever do.
I usually just wing it, which brings me mild success.
I know I'd be better off if I planned well
but my brain doesn't work that way. Maybe I need more coffee ;)
Have a good day!

I love this piece! The layering and transparency is great.

I no longer drink coffee (caffeine) but it used to be my #1 drink of choice. I worked for a coffee importer and got very spoiled with the "good stuff"...now I drink "fake" coffee!

Rita said...

Me love coffee, too!!! LOL!
Awesome sketch!
I got spoiled years ago by a cousin who taught me all about grinding my own beans and such. Changed my coffee drinking forever. ;)

Lynn Richards said...

Ahhhh. coffee..need I say more?
My favorite is Illy, but it's so expensive and I'm too cheap.
LOVE the sketch.

Frances Traina said...

thank you Janet! Wow an importer, I bet you were spoiled!!

Frances Traina said...

Hi Rita, Yes my dad used to do that. I don't grind my own and I don't think I should start. that will open up a can of worms:))

Frances Traina said...

Frances Traina said...

I don't go there too often but live with coffee drinkers... they live on the stuff... and it is real stuff all the way for them... they use a locally ground blend and all that... I quite like waking up to the smell though... they will love this when I show them...xx

Wonderful piece Fran!! I'm a coffee snob and proud of it. I can only handle so much caffeine a day or it triggers migraines so why not make it the good stuff!! xx

Cameron said...

Wow, Fran!

What a talent you are! And the fact that you have a love affair with the brown brew, too, makes you even more likeable...heehee!
