Favorite Art Supplies: Tea Solution

TEA TIME!

When watercolor artists are asked about their favorite art supplies, tea is not likely to be one of them. Most will probably say a particular brush or paper or a color. For me, it is tea. I use tea as the basic wash for all of my yoga art work. The earthy tone it gives is particulary suited to the subject matter and the style of art that I use. It creates a beautiful texture especially on a rough watercolor paper. It also deepens any color that is applied over it. It is also great fun to slosh tea water on a pristine white paper and watch it change color. Sometimes, I can do these for hours!


Thanks for visiting.
