a bit of sweet tea

I planned to sketch outside Thursday while the grandkids were in school, but it was just too sticky-sweaty-humid-hot. Plus I have been fighting seasonal allergies, which make my throat sore from draining sinuses. So I brewed some peach tea, sweetened with Carrie's granulated honey, then poured it over ice. When I am at Jason and Carrie's, I usually use this large mug for tea -- the art is from silly "scary" cartoon movie I've never seen, but I like how large it is.

Often, I like to paint in the shadows before adding color washes. This was sketched with a Lamy Joy 1.1 calligraphy nib and Platinum Carbon black ink.
