We love piping hot cup of filter coffee, don't we? The experience of starting the day or winding it up with a strong aroma of filter coffee just can't be described in words. In fact, this classic South Indian beverage has something so soothing about it that a mere glance at the drink make us crave for more. It was the same when we recently came across a picture of a hot cup of filter coffee on Twitter. The picture, posted by a profile named '@VforVendakka_', shows a cup of filter coffee in the traditional glass, with coffee beans and a newspaper by the side. It looks so real that you can just feel the aroma of the hot coffee. But to all our surprise, it was a painting. That's right. The person posted her creativity on Twitter and wrote alongside, "I painted filter coffee". Take a look:
Looks just so real; isn't it? Like us, the sketch amazed the people on Twitter too. And in no time, the picture went viral with people showering it with likes and comments. The post received more than 48k likes and 1.2k comments till now.
"Amazing!! I almost ended up asking you: which camera and what filter?!" read a comment. Another person wrote, "Amazing!! I almost ended up asking you: which camera and what filter?!". A third tweet read, "Hyperrealism. I really like it. Will start to try this next year, since hyperrealism needs months if not years to master, and the painting process itself is damn long. So cannot get into such an exhaustive learning process in my JEE prep year. Probably after I enter my college."
'@VforVendakka_' also shared a time-lapse video of the drawing. Check it out:
