On The Easel - The 1st Creston Museum Cup In The Series

"We see the brightness of a new page where everything yet can happen."
    -Rainer Maria Rilke
















©Laura Leeder, Feb.2011, Watercolor in progress.....
This is the 1st of several of the Creston Museum Teacups that I will be painting a likeness of.

Not much to see at this point, however, I alway's like to show the start of a watercolor....as this is the stage that is full of anticipation and excitement for me.  When those first few drops of juicy wet paint hit the paper and spread out......aah!  Can I tame it?...or will it do what it wants.....  At this stage the painting is starting to come to life and full of possibilities.    
The size of this piece is 5"x7"...I plan to complete several of these...although, painting this small is definately a challenge! 
A good day to spend in the studio as the temperature here in Creston is -6, snowing and windy.

Yours in art,
Laura Leeder
