On The Easel-Simplicity & Beauty in Everyday Objects-Teacups & Lace, Step 2

"When an object is the result of considered thought, brilliant interpretation, and skilled craftsmanship, it is a treasure to own, to study, and to glory in possessing."  (Henry O. Dormann)

I've decided to eliminate the fussy pattern of flowers on the cup....as I want the focus to be on the rose and the beautiful colors found in the shadows that spill across the cup and down onto the lace. Slowly glazing colors....I plan to make this rose, a rich, deep red , so it will take several colors and glazes to do so.  
Some of the colors used on the rose are: rose madder genuine, q.red, mayan red, anthraquinoid red, permanent rose, and q.violet....all Daniel Smith watercolor paints!  
Back to the studio and more glazing!
