Starbucks Cup SOLD

oil on canvas panel 6x6 inches

In the last few hours of the art show I did this quick sketch--remnants of my morning coffee. I was pretty tired by then, and I think the looseness reveals that. As I toned my canvas with a mid-value burnt umber, I realized how much it resembled coffee! The loose handling and burnt umber peeking through gave the painting an earthy feel. Maybe I'll do more burnt umber grounds. I like earthy.


  1. The burnt umber is a very nice touch Karen. I also like how the logo on the cooling holder is askew from the one on the cup.

  2. Very nice, Karen! I like the burnt umber. And the subject is something we all know! :-)

  3. Great colors...starbucks should buy it!
