A remix of two of my old still life paintings, Silk and Pearls and Tea Time. I felt it was time for another larger still life painting, and I wanted to get over my fear of painting things a second time. It was also a bit of a progress report to myself on how my painting has developed over the past couple of years.
Pearl tea is actually a style of tea (usually jasmine tea) where the tea leaves are rolled into balls. Here, I'm using the name as a play on words to describe the still life.
