Ready For More Teacups? : Daily Art Practice
Our remodel project is still in the works so I will wait to show you pictures of the completed areas, but here is a peek at our new flooring and bed linens. When looking at flooring, we originally gravitated towards a gray color but as you can see, we ended up with a whitewashed hard wood. I love how much lighter our room is now. Purging the color brown from our house has been the best decision!
And notice the heart…my husband left that for me one morning after he made the bed. He’s a keeper!
Tea Cup Class
Today, I am sharing the last lesson from my Tea Cup class. The last lesson, Paint Only, was full of demos, to which I painted a long.
The first demo was of three teacups. Liz worked on these all at the same time.
The second demo was difficult, as the subject had a very busy pattern.
This third demo was my favorite. I loved the blurred and lost edges of the sauce as well as the pattern, which was elegant and simple.
This demo featured a complex pattern.
And that was all the demos. For my own practice, I painted a layout featuring 4 of my teacups.
This is one teacup and saucer that I was excited to paint. I found this one a challenge because this is lusterware. Lusterware is a type of pottery or porcelain with a metallic glaze that gives the effect of iridescence. Painting the various colors and the highlights was difficult.
Well, that is it for my tea cup class! Next week I will share a comparison sketch from the start and finish of the class.
I am joining the tea day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My Tea today is Gorgeous Geisha from T2. This tea is SO delicious and worth the price tag. Yes, it was a splurge, but I am glad I purchased it. On the website this tea is described as ” Smooth, sweet and so creamy! Vibrant sencha green tea combined with the luscious flavors of strawberries and cream is delicious hot or iced as a summer treat.” After my post last week, I bought a few items from T2 and they arrived yesterday. I can’t wait to share the rest of my new tea and teacups in another post.
Happy Tea Day,
