A Spot of Tea

An Eight Day Challenge

An Eight Day Challenge

I love teacups. I love mugs too. Any cup with a handle is okay in my book. I use them for everything from fancy puddings for dinner parties to every glass of water I drink around the house. So it seems only natural that the first project I found that really started to express my personal style would be teacups.

My teacup project started on a whim. I proposed an eight-day challenge to my art group to help myself combat a creative funk. Since then, I’ve painted dozens of teacups. You can check out my Skillshare class Painting Teacups in Gouache: Exploring Shape, Colour and Pattern to learn how to paint with gouache and create your own teacups!
