Ahhhh....Morning Caffeine


My computer is up and running again! I can now download the painting I did while I was off work due to the snow. This watercolor is a 5 x 7 painting of a cup, saucer and a pot. The pot could have tea or coffee in it. My preference would be tea, however I felt I would leave the title "open" for what the patrons decides.

I began by laying in the base colors.

 

I then worked on the shadows of the pot and the cup and saucer.

Next was the detail in the saucer. I have to say this was a first for me. I normally would not have added the detail for fear that I could not do it. So, I am happy that I tried it and that it turned out ok. The reflection in the knife and spoon are somewhat unfamiliar areas also. I think I would try more detail on an object and reflection again.

This turned out to be a fun still life. I liked the colors and feel I captured the blissful moment when you finish your morning caffeine.

I love the brown tea pot. What a great subject to paint. Good job Gaylynn.

Also, thanks for the tip on the blog information. I will probably attempt to change my blog in the next couple of weeks. Wish me luck.
