The idea for this painting popped in my head in the middle of the night last night ..... when I was supposed to be sleeping. Who thinks about tea bags at 2 a.m.?! I was actually thinking about all the possibilities when painting small, simple, everyday items.
I tried to "stay loose" with this one, but sometimes that translates to "mud" for me. And it happened here. Thank goodness for my new "handy dandy" large angle chisel! :) What a great tool! I want to paint something now just so I can scrape the paint off of it. Can't wait to see what kind of effects I can make with it. I've noticed that in other artists' work, and love it.
Thank you again, Carol, for writing a great book and sharing so much advise on tools and equipment!
