This gouache painting shows one of my favorite places in Berlin: The Croissanterie in Pannierstraße Neukölln.
I did not paint for a while and thought about trying another technique. I used gouache before but in a different way. After browsing through Pinterest I got inspired by some beautiful paintings.
But I did not know what to paint…
On a sunday I went to the croissanterie again, had a coffee, a croissant and started to create this gouache painting.
What I like about this painting style is the kind of realistic but also very rough interpretation.
The choice of motive is an every day life scene inspired by instagram postings – #foodie #butfirstcoffee #flatlaylove.
In times of picture driven social media platforms like instagram and always available smartphone cameras, it was a fun thing to paint my posting. Of course it is a different thing compared to editing the digital picture. And both is fun to me.
Here are some Pinterest links I want to remember, because they inspired me a lot.
