Tea Tasting Tuesdays

Yesterday afternoon at my job, an optional seminar was given to provide people with an introduction to different kinds of tea. We tried a few different kinds and the woman who spoke even brought dark chocolate for us to enjoy with some of the teas we tried. My new favorite is Pu-erh tea. It was lovely. I had my ink brush and sketch pad with me soooo....I drew a simple sketch to go with the notes I took., then colored it at home.

Dumpling Shark P1

Im not entirely sure where the inspiration for this came from but...here it is. I think I had a craving for dumplings. Still trying to get a hang of these water pens. I did this as an exercise that involved no pencils. Just pen and ink, watercolor and a wacky idea written up on the fly. Stay tuned for part2!

Gimme some Dimsum!

A friend recently showed me a pen he bought that had a brush tip to it. It works off of replaceable ink cartridges and I was curious so I got myself one. It feels great but kind of strange in that Im used to having more control of my line when I draw. I think I'll enjoy getting used to it. I was craving some dimsum last night so I drew this pic with the pen and colored using an Aquash waterbrush set. The paper was from a packet of blank postcards with the address lines, etc printed on the back.

Total time: 2 hours + one plate of left overs.
