Illustration Friday - Tea

I thought I would experiment with tea staining. I started with 4 different teas and made a concentrated brew.


So then I did an old english tile design and painted it with the tea stains. The green tea was most disappointing as it produced just a hint of pigment. Maybe next week the topic will be beets and I can REALLY go to town.



Thanks for looking.

Illustration Friday - Chair


This is my dining room chair.
I don't actually have anything inspiring to write about it.
It's a chair.
I sat in it.

I should have drawn my couch as I spent so much time in it recently watching the BBC's North and South. It was so delicious to watch and Mr. Thornton is a bit of "Ooh, yes please."
"I daren't believe such a woman could care for me."
I'm in love. I could care for you!
