White Cup Blue Saucer

I painted this white cup and pale blue saucer thinking it was a simple composition.  Well, I guess I didn't really think it through. There's a whole lot of values, gradations, reflections, highlights, drawing and proportions/perspective, to name a few. Even though life gets busy, it is important for me to take my time.


  1. Sometimes it is hard to know what level of detail to put into a painting, especially if you want to simplify things. I think you did a great job with it.

  2. If only I could paint a cup like you.....Oh well I will keep trying. I love all of your paintings they are so crisp and fresh. Beautiful
