You might have seen over on Instagram the coffee drinkers illustration series I painted. I was inspired by modern blog life, do fashion bloggers do anything other than drink in coffee shops?
I don’t usually paint a whole illustration on one piece of paper, so these took a little more planning than usual. I kept the colour palette very simple, using blues, greys and a little orange. I really enjoyed playing with thicker gouache textures and watercolour washes on these illustrations. I’m happy with all the white space which I think gives the illos a very restful feel. The look is simpler than my recent ‘Girls in Shirts’ series where I used a lot more pattern.
I’m thinking these could make nice art prints, which coffee drinker illustration is your favourite?
