The inspiration for my April was right under my nose- COFFEE! John and I usually have a cup of some sort of coffee-beverage in hand at all times so it's definitely something we have at home, and anyone that has ever spilled coffee knows that it will leave a mark.
Which brings me to another reason for choosing this to paint with- due to the 'stay at home' orders due to Covid-19 I wanted to choose a material that I could share with my students as a way to still make art without going to the store for 'paint'. What better way to show them what you can do with something simple like coffee than to do it myself?!
I used this as an excuse to go and buy a couple of fashion magazines to get some ideas and immediately found several images that I wanted to sketch so...here we go!
