Painting with tea, coffee and red wine.

In my Soul Food class we are having new teachers all the time.
 I love that because then we are learning new things all the time.
My last project was with Joyce van der Lery. 
She is a fabulous artist living in New Zeeland.

First I had to make some tea..

I did not make one ore too...

I made 12

I had a pack of Christmas Collection with 12 different tea bags.
The the is Yogi Tea and each and every bag has a quote written on the tag.

After making the tea I let it stand for a while to cool down before I did start making my palette. 

I think my palette looks beautiful with its 12 types of tea color.
On the side I did add some coffee and red wine.
I think the read wine has the most beautiful color and some of the tea colors were great too.
I did make 3 squares, painted all of them. Let it dry then I painted two of them, let it dry. In the end I painted one square and that is the darkest one having 3 rounds. 

Now I´m making a painting with all those beautiful tea colors.
You have to wait for few days to see how it look likes as it takes a long time to 
paint because for best results it is best to let it dry between layers.

Have a great weekend



  1. What a fun idea! The colors are so pretty and subtle.

  2. Utterly fascinating! What a wonderful idea. I can't wait to see what my tea colors will be.

    1. Thank you Faye, I dont know how long time the color will last but hopefully for a long time :)
