So there it is—if I’m posting this it means that life was far too crazy the past week with our new store and I did not get any painting done at all. I can’t wait for life to get back into some sort of routine. Right now I’m just impressed that I remembered it was Wednesday.
I did this one the same day that I did the black tea-pot in January. I wasn’t happy with it at the time, but just recently, when I was organizing my studio, I rediscovered it and don’t think it’s so terrible anymore. I was disappointed with how thick the paint got when I added white to it, making it more like an acrylic than a watercolour, although now after looking at some of John Singer Sargent ‘s watercolours I don’t think that is such a bad thing. I took a couple of detail photos of it to show what I meant and now I am liking the cropped images even better than the full painting…

I liked the cropped versions-they add intrigue lol-all the best with the new shop! It looks great!!
Thanks Janet! I really need to play with cropping and composition more when I’m painting.
I am always in awe of your ability to capture fine details. It’s amazing.
Thanks Kelly :)
WoW! What a nice looking creamer! I really like this one Dayna! I enjoy seeing all the details and the vibrant colours on it. A very beautiful piece and you painted it well. John would be jealous!
Haha! Thanks Marie :)
