Tea For one by bpresing Tea For one by bpresing
I did this piece to contribute to "Art Blocks for Ghana", a charity art auction by artists in the animation and illustration community to help build a children's Home in Ghana.

This was a tough one. We were required to paint on these square wooden blocks, which meant I needed to paint opaquely. I haven't painted in a non transparent method in a good long time, so I was a bit rusty.

Working the grain of the block into the image as the walls was a genius move. I like the juxtaposition of the naturalistic shadows and light with the elegant stylized steam clouds.
