|"Time for Tea" 10,5 x14,8cm , watercolor and colored pencil on paper|
I'm happy to have this challenge to prevent the winter doldrums. The delicate white of the porcelain teapot was fun to paint this morning, although I was hoping to achieve less harsh shadows.Watercolor has a life of its own sometimes, at least I feel like it does! You can see my work in progress in the picture below. The light rolled in pretty quickly and I wanted to finish before the conditions changed too much. I'm happy with the color combinations of contrasting blue and yellow and am working on keeping my palette to a minimum of colors. I love colors and have a tendency to add too many. Trying to finish a work a day is helping me realize I need to stick to the basics and essentials of painting. This is day six out of thirty!
