Do you associate paintings as masculine or feminine?
Normally I don't, but this painting was more delicate not only because of the pastel colors, but the color palette had me go lighter on the brushwork and choosing my strokes carefully.

The color scheme in a painting is so important to me- do the colors harmonize with each other? Is there a lot of contrast or only a little? Is it warm? Cool? Gray or full of bright light and deep shadows?
All of these things will effect the way in which the paint is applied, almost instinctively.
Of course if you do have a double espresso in the morning, I don't recommend painting something delicate, as your hand may begin to shake!
Really though, these beautiful coffee cups, that are so small that you have to pinch them between your thumb and forefinger in order to drink your coffee, come in every color combination imaginable.
Which makes them perfect for painting.
