after the tea


I was tempted to add color to this drawing with the tea itself, but - frugal soul that I am - I think I can get another cup out of the bag, if I don't rub it all over my sketchbook first.


That is a lovely drawing-- if I say "lifelike" I hope you take it nicely as intended :)

My favorite teabags RED ROSE, is $3.49 for a box of 100. I don't bother to be frugal enough to use the tea bag again, especially since I prefer to brew by the pot.
Although I have been known to cut open the paper to spread the spent leaves on the ground around plants in the yard.
My aunt always said the plant appreciates something in the tea, and will produce greener leaves itself.

That looks so true to life, and like it would make a magical cup of tea. I've never tried painting with tea, but it seems like it would be fun. Unfortunately (fortunately?) I drink loose-leaf tea most of the time, so I'm not quite sure how that would work! :)
