Coffee Roasting Almost Done!

I had two paintings to do for the inside of the roasting plant. The left picture shows the testing of beans during the roasting process. The one on the right is the moment that the beans are released from the roaster for cooling. I have a little refinement to do, but not too much. Perhaps best of all, Calvin, my "model" who was hard at work while I was painting, was thrilled. From the earlier painting on the left, I updated the company's logo from its all-blue to a red & black version they are using now and made some color adjustments to the beans and the lighting of the roaster and brought Calvin closer to a likeness (including the glasses he puts on when he's looking at the beans).
