Tea, glorious tea. Tea has something special over coffee in that it invites us to slow down and self soothe a little. It seems to restore the unravelled edges of the mind in a way only a hot brew of tea can.
All you need to do for today is be inspired by the tea you’re already soothing your heart with (or coffee if you’re not a tea person). Make yourself a cup of your favourite tea. Loose leaf, in a pot, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you love it.
- Set your cup or mug in front of you.
- As you sip its hot contents and watch the steam rise, draw your tea.
- Don’t sensor your drawing skills. If you make quick sketches do that. If you like line drawings do that. This is more about opening a tap into your intuitive self than creating a masterpiece.
Now while you draw the tea in front of you, don’t think of anything in particular. Just enjoy the taste of the tea and paying homage to it in a little drawing.
After all, that’s what tea is made for – some switching off time, me time.
If you’re posting your drawings on social media feel free to add the #mininaturedrawingchallenge so I can follow along in your creations.
