Tea landscape - Maree

"Of all the wonders of nature, a tree in summer
is perhaps the most remarkable; with the possible
exception of a moose singing "Embraceable You" in spats"!
- Woody Allen

A friend's drive-way leading up to the house - nothing spectacular, no colourful, flowering borders, the road is not even brick-paved - but somehow the trees flanking the one side of the drive-way and some shrubs on the other side caught my attention. I mentioned to her that I would like to sketch those few trees and she accommodatingly carried our tea down the drive-way, where we set up a couple of stools and chatted away in between sips of our tea.

Now here's the thing - we forgot to bring water and instead of walking all the way back up to the house, I poured some left-over black tea into my cup and used that instead! I'm sure it contributed to the nice hues of brown the emerged here!


  1. haha, I have painted with coffee Maree, just plain coffee, no color. That is interesting too.

  2. Gee Teri, never gave that a thought! Think I'll give it a try!
