Coffee Mug


coffee, originally uploaded by Cathy (Kate) Johnson.

I'm doing some original art for a young friend of mine, and at the same time trying out Folio paper, which has a lovely, tough surface with an interesting texture--I like how this turned out! I'll be ordering more of this paper--I did three different techniques and it worked pretty well with all of them.

I was using Kremer watercolors, which are quite grainy and lift easily--loved the way they granulated and blended here...

VERY yummy and bold! Love this one! That reminds me that I meant to try Folio paper---isn't that the one Roz told us about? Or maybe it was you who wrote of it? Anyway, this is one amazing cup, Miss Kate!
Xoox,

Thanks, sweets! Yes, Roz told us about it, and the dear thing sent me a little pile of scraps from one of her projects to play with--they're all about 5 x 7" so that was what I was using today!

I DO love my coffee cup--found it in a thrift store years ago, and I continue to use it with a big chip in the rim...gorgeous, like the Northern lights...
