Espresso by Cristin

Hello starshines!

In the cold wintery month's the perfect way to warm up is with coffee and espresso... and today I will pay homage to that love!

I started with a 12" x 12" canvas, and layered ephemera with matte gel and light layer of white gesso. Then, I started sketching my design.

From there I used a splattery stencil with modeling paste, and started painting it in. I love to use the Prima Art Alchemy paints in my paintings and I especially love the look of the metallique and opal magics! Every time I include these paints in my work I get compliments and "oohs and ahhhs" over the beautiful color and sheen they provide!

I finished off the painting with a layer of gloss varnish and that is it!

Doesn't it make you want an espresso?
