Crazy Coffee Percolator :: Percolateur délirant

Here is my coffee percolator that I inherited from my parents many years ago (even though they are still living and healthy of mind and body) and which they had for most of their lives. This is a Revere Ware coffee percolator and it makes the most heavenly coffee as I use Paradisio black coffee beans that I grind myself and buy at Second Cup. So I went a tad crazy painting it as I have started a new sketchbook, my trusted Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook. It was just pure pleasure to paint on this paper again, in this format again. Yeah!

Voici mon percolateur que j’ai hérité de mes parents il y a déjà des lunes et eux l’ont aussi utilisé pour une bonne partie de leurs vies. C’est un Revere Ware et fait un café exquis avec les grains de café Paradisio noirs que je mous moi-même de Second Cup. Un autre bonheur est le fait que je viens de commencer un autre cahier croquis que j’aime beaucoup de Moleskine. C’était un pur plaisir de peindre dedans et j’ai reviré un petit peu folle, tellement que j’étais contente!

Colours: Indigo, Burnt Umber & Aureolin
Paper: Moleskine Watercolour Sketchbook
