What I’m Working On: 

I started to paint with tea and ink on watercolor paper. It’s an interesting technique because it is a very fast way to paint. The tea gives an effect similar to watercolor but it is an unpredictable way to spread the ink. It takes lots practice and creativity but it so much fun. Every painting is a special story.
