Coffee Art | Painting with Coffee



County heart of everyday life but as Kim Kaiser reports to Northland artists have a new take on this traditional drink it's almost an art form getting that daily jolt of Java just bright weather from the shop or the kitchen well brewed cup gives Duluth artist angel Cercle a boost I whipped three paintings out in one night and I think I had a little extra coffee that night it helps but this isn't for drinking angel and her boyfriend andy souwer have a different use in mind I think we saw napkin that had the coffee ring stain on it and we thought wow that could be something interesting to work with and that got their creative juices going Andy and Angel make coffee art it all starts with a sketch Andy kinda does it more general and I get more details with my first sketches when the designs ready the coffee adds color and so then we just go and do a wash no gourmet roasts here this supermarket brand will do then you get washes like this and it looks like nothing and then once you get the really dark colors with each brush stroke the coffee reveals a new discovery of texture or color I love the warm tones and that you get with a coffee it's gotten good colors with stronger brews each layer adds depth and a picture emerges sometimes with results that even surprised me that's Kevin on another painting Andy experiments with a really rich look we made the coffee really really thick really like mud almost well he hates the way it tastes and he says it's a great medium I'm really happy with it I never suspected that coffee can we make such interesting works the artists aren't the only ones amazed by their success their paintings are on display at beaners coffee shop in West Duluth some customers have already paid for the artworks while others aren't sold on the idea just yet sometimes it takes a little while skeptical is it really coffee are you doing something I other people don't realize what well how come all your works are brown like well is just coffee Andy and Angel like to paint faces famous musicians even self-portraits wildlife is also a favorite theme they've seen folks trying to sniff their art but so far they haven't caught anyone sneaking a lick they're content to sip coffee from their cups instead in Duluth Kim Kaiser nu6 here's a look again at the painting of Kim boy it's just amazing and yes it does have a smell of fresh brewed coffee

    Interesting turn in art I guess, though I really don't see how it's any different from doing monochromatic watercolors.
