Coffee Cups, Updated

I've tried something a little different with the coffee cups. The coffee cups themselves are done with colored pencil on paper. To give them a little more weight, I mounted the paper onto a canvas-covered artist's board called Pannelli Telati. I painted the board with acrylics in colors to complement the cups.

The coffee cups are 4 x 6 inches; the board is 5x7.

I'm much happier with this now. It needed the extra substance from the board.
