On The Easel - Today's Focus...It's All In The Details!

"There is one thing one has to have: either a soul that is cheerful by nature, or a soul made cheerful by work, love, art, and knowledge." 
    -Friedrich Nietzsche







Teacup #4 in the Series

It's All In The Details!  A saying I use quite a lot.  And that's the stage this painting is in. 

Studying it overall and adjusting values where needed. 

Adding enough detail to the lace to make it believable, especially the area's where the lace overlaps. 
(I've avoided including areas of folded lace in many of my paintings in the past, as it is tricky and time consuming)

I will work on this piece for a while to today, as I am feeling brave! 

Enjoy your day, Laura Leeder
