A sneak peak at what I'm working on in the Studio today. I'm painting a Shelley teacup which was on loan from a friend. I love its curviness and blue accents on the rim and handle.
This is my second attempt at this design. My first painting was OK, but not exactly what I had in mind, so I choose to do it over. Glad I did, I'm much happier with this one.
Here's my personal critique of my original artwork:
I wasn't thrilled with the bright background color or design, nor the color of the ribbon, or the flowers in the foreground. The overall color of the shadows on the teacup were too warm making it look muddy. I also thought a tighter weave on the lace over a richer blue would look better.
