I've been itching and itching to do a sketch on tea bag paper. Specifically, a botanical sketch. I'm working on other projects right now but this has been pressing for some time now. So tonight as I walked home from the grocers I picked a small unopened bud of a cream color peony and then a few blocks later spotted some maple seeds hanging from the branch and ready to fall. The maple tree has a medium size dark burgundy color leaf and there is very very dark plum colors on the edges of the cream peony.
When I got home I put dinner on the stove which would take about 30 minutes to cook and so when the timer rang to tell me dinner was ready I stopped sketching and that is what I am giving away.
It is done with india ink and watercolor pencil. As it is done on used tea bag paper there are the normal holes and wear and tear of the paper. Usually I manage to tear another hole in the paper as I press too hard in a spot or two. This did happen with this sketch. And of course, there is the usual india ink blob. A solid dot that speaks for itself. So this is not fine art I am giving away here. It's a sketch. I am thinking it will be easy to mail out and you can use it in your art somewhere. Maybe part of a collage. Or maybe you can just spray it with adhesive and put it on a card. Anyway, just leave a comment below and I'll pick a winner on Sunday. Talk soon, *smiles* Norma
