Coffee for Two

I have been attending the Chris Leeper watercolor workshop this week. This was my 2nd project in the workshop.  The challenge was to select a dark color and an earth color and do the entire painting with just those two colors - a value study.  This painting is done on 1/4 sheet Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. cold pressed watercolor paper.  I selected diox. violet and indian red for my color mixture.

So fabulous, Barb! Thoughts of old diners and old tv shows jumbled together in my head, inspired by this lovely little gem!
