Black Tea and a Silver Spoon

Daily Painting Challenge - Day 25

Today was a different challenge - I tried to capture the translucency of the paper and wet tea leaves through the bag, as opposed to yesterday which had an un-dipped dry teabag.

I had difficulty photographing this one - the liquid tea on the actual painting (in the spoon and on the plate) is not quite that 'orange', but my camera couldn't seem to color adjust for it, no matter what light conditions I tried, so you'll have to just have to believe me.

Painting metal is interesting as it reflects everything, like a mirror, so a lot of what you are painting as actually the color of the objects surroundings.
