Tell us more about staining the paper with tea
oh my, i would have swear by the small thumbnail it was a photo. nice work with the tea, indeed.
You're a Wyeth if I've even seen one. Nice stuff, very nice.
Hi Pete,I draw my image onto watercolor paper and I stretch it and wait until it dries. Then I pour boiling water over several teabags. When the water is cool, I stain the paper with several washes of tea (letting each wash dry before applying the next) to get the color I want. Using pen and ink and watercolor I paint the image. Very simple technique with lovely results.~Gina
That's a painting? I thought it was a photo! AMAZING!!!
Wow, gorgeous painting (I thought it was a photo too at first), and interesting methods!!
So interesting and beautiful. Very evocative, haunting image.
I'm having trouble believing this is not a photo. Awesome.
A truly beautiful image. I love the tone the tea creates.
Very beautiful painting superbly rendered. I love it.
Gina,Thanks for the reply. This weekend I tried soaking 140# arches cp in tea for various lengths of time. I got quite varying results (some very good, some no so good).I'll try the wash technique to see if I have more control over the tone.Pete
