On The Easel- Simplicity & Beauty in Everyday Objects-Teacup & Lace

"Simplicity captures and expresses the essence of the subject."  
     (Hap Hagood)














 
 
 
 
I get great satisfaction in painting the everyday items that we surround ourselves with. In this painting.... I'm starting with a rich, jewel toned background that will showcase the tea cup and rose.  The colors used are Indanthrone Blue, Deep Sap Green and Bordeaux....all Daniel Smith Watercolor paints.  
 
The snow is falling softly outside and beckoning....down with the brushes and out for a winter walk.  
Enjoy your day.....
