Remember on Monday we saw the amazing paints and drawings of Brett Whiteley? Well now I have the honor of showing you some work, created by Pablo Francis, that was inspired by Whiteley. What a treat! Pablo was able to be guided through an exhibition of Whiteley’s work by his wife and muse, Wendy, shortly after his death in 1992. What an honor and inspiration!
Pablo uses coffee washes in his artwork, along with lots of expressive lines (much like Whiteley) and takes great care in creating areas of detail and spaces of looseness and unpredictability. His current series focuses on Rome, Paris and Melbourne, all famous for their love of coffee.
Pablo lives and works in St Kilda, Australia and is available for commission pieces internationally. Check out his portfolio here.
Oh I so agree! Makes me want to brew some strong coffee and start painting! So much fun!
It is very inspiring! I’ve been meaning to do some coffee-including paintings for a while, now I’m motivated to do them NOW! [: Thanks for sharing this.
Good for you! If you want, you can leave a link to your creation in the comments here so we can see what you come up with!
