I painted my teacup. I have to admit, I wasn't sure I could pull it off. Doing the detailed pattern study yesterday made me realize just how fiddly teacups are and I knew that the pattern on the actual teacup I'd be drawing was much smaller than the larger version I did yesterday. But, I did it. I'm happy with how it turned out. I don't think it has my style to it, i'm not a fiddly teacup kinda girl. You'd have to be a specific kind of detail person to love doing this. I can guarantee Liz Steel, our teacher from SBS is just that sort. She's an architect by trade so she sees beautiful detail in everything. I'm glad I did it though. I learned that I can. that's a good thing to learn. I'm glad I don't own any teacups that I'd want to paint though, lol.
(Both pages with teacup pattern study and actual teacup.)
Talk to you tomorrow, I'm darn sure there'll be more art. November's not over yet. (Entering this into AEDM.) Best,

I'm a watercolor and mixed-media artist who blogs about her adventure in paint. Come visit me at JustAddWaterSilly.com. I also am a contributing editor for Featuring magazine, an international english language art magazine published quarterly. Previously I owned my own wedding cake business (for eight years) making designer wedding cakes decorated in handmade cold porcelain flowers. It was fun creating three dimensional real looking flowers as decorations but I really wanted to be a painter so when I moved I shut down the business. Now I paint, blog, write for Featuring and review good books for fun. It's a good life.
