Vincent Van Gogh portrait

Here’s a portrait I did of ┬áVincent Van Gogh using a cup of coffee. The title of the piece is “Cup of Gogh” and measures 16″x20″. It was pretty funny when I went to get the cup of coffee at a local cafe and I asked the woman behind the counter which coffee had the prettiest color. She looked at me for a brief moment like I had testicles on my forehead. I then told her I wasn’t drinking it but rather painting with it. She then carefully suggested one for me and the rest is art history. This is my first painting done in coffee and it was a fun medium to explore.

  1. Really cool. I think I’m going to try out your “dropletting” technique some time.
