Friday nights around my dining room table have become a special time of fellowship, creativity, and tea. Plenty of tea while waiting for the paper to dry before adding more color, which means staying up late and laughing more. The last two weeks we've been painting a blue and white teacup. First we painted the shadows and background.
The second week we painted the blue and white details with our tiniest brushes, and darken the table to create more contrast between the white rim of the saucer and the table.
My neighbor has a beautiful collection of blue and white china, so it wasn't hard finding a lovely subject to paint. This one caught our eye with a butterfly and bird among the flowers.
May your cup always be full of the memories you share.
