As it happens every so often, the model called in sick so I had to do a regular daily painting. A friend loaned me her french coffee press to paint. It was fun! The coffee is dark brown but the surface was reflecting the green wall so I blended the two colors together with a little white. The inside glass was steamy and dripping with condensation so I grayed it out with white, yellow ochre and a little green. I know that there is some rule about never putting something in the middle of the composition but I like breaking the rules. Actually there are always exceptions where the no no's become ah ha's!
