Tea is such a comforting drink, yet the plant itself is a bit mysterious. Reading about its fascinating history got me inspired in researching this plant, Camelia sinensis, to discover some of it’s more folkloric uses. It was also nice to see what the plant’s flower looks like: what a delicate bloom!
I really enjoyed painting this piece even though the combination of white flowers and leaves was a bit intimidating! I used watercolours and ink on watercolour paper.
If you enjoy this piece, it is available in my Etsy shop. As an independent artist, each sale helps me to support my life and to continue to create more art!
