Coffee time

Light, books, etc.

For a long time I wanted to paint a still life with books again. A few weeks ago, I was reading a book one evening, having a nice cup of coffee. The old bouillotte lamp was on, and it gave a nice soft light-dark effect to the stuff on the table and the books on the shelves behind. I took a few pictures of that setting, and I knew I wanted to paint it.

Again, I used the three primary colors plus burnt umber and titanium white.

This is how it became The Cup of Coffee, oil, panel, 24x30,5 cm. View the finished painting in my gallery.
