Medium: Acrylic

Cher Pruys is our 1st prize winner for perfectly encapsulating our vision of coffee-related art. Pruys’ depiction of the daily mundane of having coffee with a paper celebrates the cherished moments of an idiosyncratic routine. The hyper-realistic method of Pruys’ painting displays her attention to detail of surface texture and gradient lighting. Pruys is a self-taught artist with a focal medium in water-based acrylic, gouache, and watercolor. Her painting method is methodically tight layers of multi-medium colors to achieve the minute details of still life.
