    Wow, very beautiful!

    I just looked at the sketch and the finished piece - both wonderful. How did you get so much detail in her kimono sleeves? It's fantastic!

      Thank you :) The detail on the kimono sleeve is done in white gel pen. The texture effect is just the tea showing through the lavender color wash.

        Oh that's creative! I guess it has to be completely dry to do it. The idea of using tea with watercolor (I've never tried it before) is quite alluring.

          Yes ~ The entire image is tea stained first and then worked over with other media :) Using color washes allows the tea to come through in certain areas, or I can make it more opaque with heavier color / colored pencil.

            It's a great technique. I've never tried tea staining but I like the results I see.
