tea is cute

Little watercolor practice from a digital sketch I recently did.  I’ll probably be doing more of these from now on and since they are practice pieces I’ll be selling them for less than premium prices!
Some of these will also be given out in my Patreon raffle original art giveaways soon!!

romantic student things
  • meeting up in the library in the morning and idly chattering while planning the day
  • sitting together in silence while working but still touching elbows or knees and feeling the comfort of each other’s presence
  • comparing schedules to see when you can spend time together
  • helping each other understand an academic concept and then smiling and giggling because wow your s/o is so cute and smart and you are so proud of them
  • drinking way too much coffee and/or tea together
  • planning a date and then saying, “screw it, we are tired and i’d rather watch a movie and cuddle at your dorm”
  • being frustrated when life is busy but ecstatic once you get to spend time with them
  • chilling at campus cafes in between classes
  • finding time to spend even 20 minutes with each other because you miss them and want to catch up
  • feeling proud of them when they do well on a test
  • comforting them when they do poorly on a test
  • whining about school, then making out and feeling better

My half of my art trade with the AMAZING @taryndraws!  We share a love of tea and witches, so naturally I had to paint a tea witch for her.  I imagine this witch cultivates her own plants to concoct some kind of healing brew, and of course uses magic to do so.

By the way, I’ve started using my Instagram story to post process photos of my paintings, so if you’d like to see all the rough sketches etc that come before the final piece, head on over to my Instagram to check it out!
