Coffee for Two

This was my 2nd project in the Chris Leeper 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.

No one mixes beautiful colors like you do. This looks like our coffee waiting for us.
