If you have been following my style of artwork, you will notice the majority of it are quite ‘mellow’ or ‘muted’ in colours. But this time, this piece is pretty ‘loud’, colours that I hardly use. So why the change?
No, I am not changing my style, it is just that I feel that it is good to do something out of the norm once in a while. And since this is a much smaller piece at 8 x 8 inches, I thought that it will be quite fun to do something dramatic.
This is a tea caddy made of ceramic to store tea leaves. In my case, Chinese tea leaves. It was a gift from Taiwan, by the guy who was my model of the portrait that I did last year. It was such a lovely gesture from him and something that I will treasure for a long time.
