This cute little guy is one of the tea experiments I posted last Friday. Rather than watercolor, I made the wash with strong black tea, and then enhanced it with a brown fountain pen and, you guessed it, more tea. The shape that the tea left when it dried suggested a puppy to me, so I played a little bit with the pen and brush and eventually got something I was happy with.
The end result is warm and whimsical, just the perfect thing for a dog lover.
Puppy Love, 7″x5″ pen & ink and tea on paper.
