TEAPOT AND ORB

Can you say PINK!

This photo wowed me (and my daughter!) so I decided to go for it.

Because I thought that this painting called for so many colors of pink, I decided to use watercolor for this one, since I have a lot of pinks in watercolor.

Once again, the painting was started from the photo and then redrawn. I decided to use some Fabriano paper I have had for a long time. In checking, this was the only piece like this I had, 300# with “Fabriano” embossed on it, but it doesn’t resemble any of the other Fabriano I have. It’s not Artistico, maybe it’s Uno which I don’t think they make any more?? Anyway, it’s a mystery and it’s very soft.

wow..I would certainly wait for the WIP...

Can't wait to see this one!! Your drawing is amazing! My initial drawings look like a second grader did it! (Then I go in and "fix" it with paint!!) Maybe that's why I like oils so much. As you know I didn't get in the Viewpoint, but I'm going to try to make the opening.

Gorgeous subject and so ripe for a watercolour - all those quins and opera pink and permanent rose - could go on forever. Great drawing - can't wait to see how it progresses.

Thanks all!
Martine, I'll have to get a translator!!! Basically the picture looks great and the drawing is good and you look forward to seeing more???? Thank goodness for high school french (many years ago!)
Kimberly - drawing is taken from the picture, then redrawn diligently!
Joan - juicy pinks indeed!

What Martine said! (I don't speak French but it sure sounded good!)I am soooo looking forward to seeing this one progress. It has such great possibilities, which I have no doubts you will carry off without a hitch!

PS..My word verification word was "fatrap"...is that, somehow, personal? Sigh

Thanks Susan - was that personal to you or to me??? ha ha

What a beautiful and elaborate drawing ... just the kind of thing I would like to do but then end up being too impatient to follow-through on!
