24 x 34cms on reverse of another work discarded. Based on a travel magazine photo. Now experimenting with big decorating brushes, ink dribbles (not many here) and smudges with tissue rather than only credit cards, all still easy to handle.

acrylics?

Really liking everything about this, except for the 'brown' in the sky [it's just a wee too much top centre i think]

great comp/contrast/appeal and the pink/orange/blue dabs are genius

This reminds me of a painting by one of the greats, about apple orchards I think, cannot presently recall who it was by.

and this is also a classic,
very free and loose

Quite a busy little scene here Derek. I love the tree climber and the one in the pink poke-a-dot shorts.

Cheers La. Greggo, Dave and Joe.
Yes acrylics
The brown smudge was already on the reverse of the discarded piece. I don't aim to exhibit these pieces.
Tree climber? Oh yes a happy accident.
Stabs of colour lifted it IMHO

I love tea and the title left me intrigued. When I saw the work I just thought "Superb". It does justice to the tea "experience"...but hey, I also love coffee.
