Diane Mannion, Great Grandmother's Teapot, 8x10" o/c
My great-grandmother's teapot or my granddaughter's great-great-great grandmother's teapot. A piece of history, perhaps from England via Canada to US.
Still continuing the floral theme, taking my time to finish rather than posting everyday. So what's the hurry anyway!?! And so what if it's overworked rather than daily-painting-spontaneous. Maybe, there's a point where a painting needs to be overworked and then pushed through that stage... polished and refined. After the month long race of finishing a painting everyday last month, I'm relishing the process of painting at my own speed.
Working in alla prima technique, this painting took about two days. The background, teapot, and leaves were painted using only cad red light, cad yellow medium, ultramarine blue and white. The roses... permanent rose, transparent red, alizarin also. And the roses were from my Floridian garden, mid-winter!
