I painted this thinking of my perfect reading spot, in a tree of my own imagining. What isn’t shown here (that you can see) is a magical tea pot (and cup) with never-ending free-flowing hot tea, perfectly flavoured.

Technical info: Watercolours and pencil on tea-stained Daler-Rowney Heavyweight paper, 9.5 by 13.5 inches.
