Title: Raw Fuel
Size: 36 x 48 inches
Medium: Oil on canvas
Like many people I love a good espresso. I have an espresso maker in my studios. Every morning the coffee beans are the first thing I come into contact with. They are the beginning of the ritual. First they are ground into a fine powder. They are the raw fuel. I begin my day the same way every day. The power of this ritual in turn feeds my creativity.
This painting is done on canvas in professional quality oil paints. I’ve used mixtures of Burnt Sienna, Indian Red and Venice Red to capture the richness of colour in the coffee beans. The light and the depth of the richness in this painting are incredible.
The photograph doesn’t do the work justice. Depending on the lighting in the room the colors change! The reds and browns dance before the eye!
