This small, 5″ x 7″ , painting will be donated to the Woman’s Club of Medford for their upcoming Pink Tea fundraiser. Do you give back to organizations that are important to you? I can highly recommend the good feeling that happens when you donate your art to causes that speak to your soul.
Started with a small study in my sketchbook to work out the kinks. My intent was to have the painting feel delicate and feminine. After all, Woman’s Club/tea doesn’t conjure visions of big, dark and heavy. Hence the small size for the painting.
In the study, I felt the blue background was distracting and it reminded me I wanted the middle cup to be the center of interest, so I used more detail on that cup, and used my normal wet-into-wet style to just suggest the patterns on the background cups.
Do you do studies before you start a painting? I must admit, I don’t always do this, but anytime I have, it reminds me of how well the time is spent.
