Week#1 Coffee Painting Challenge

Coffee Painting Week 1 – Cherry Blossom Tree – Original Coffee and Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

This month I am participating to a themed weekly Coffee Painting Challenge, this is the painting for Week #1 the theme is “Cherry Blossom Tree” (Use Pinks and Blues to make it pop!) I loved to create this portrait. Painting with coffee is beautiful and opens all a new way to create! I haven’t painted with it in a while and I loved to go back to it! This month I will create a mini series of four collectible paintings, they would be available in Limited Edition Art Prints.
