"Finishing is torture... There's always some newly seen flaw. But the little glimpses of beauty between the anxiety make it worth it." ~Jacob Collins
©Teacup with Orchid, Painting In Progress
By Laura Leeder
So close to the finish line.....but not quite there! I've added the tea, which I now think helps to complete/balance the picture. I am planning to add a "surprise" detail to the inside as well. And no, it's not an orchid!
I still have the handle to finish painting and then adjusting values and fine detailing on the rest of the teacup. Same with the blossoms....adjusting values, rescuing some of the white blossom edges and adding the small dot's. Then the lace detail...
...and please, no more orchids! At least for a while....
Have a great day...I'm off to the studio to finish this one!

ps: many thanks for all the suggestions on completing this painting, I considered them all and was able to move forward.
