Tiny Teacup, Snippet #18

Diane Mannion, Tiny Teacup, Snippet #19, 2.5x3.5" oil on linen

      Last teacup (I promise) for the Weekly Challenge at Daily Paintworks.  Previous two were purple/orange, red/green, and this one is blue/yellow.  With this one, used an orange leaning cadmium yellow deep and a purple leaning ultramarine blue... so there's also a purple/yellow effect of the complementary colors.  Again, painted from life, white teacup and background.  
      Made the two inch tall teacup myself!  Applause please.  Great for tea, saki, or expresso.  When not a painter, I'm a potter, but have been too busy painting to pot.
