Tea for One

My little green teapot.  I have been doing the 31 day challenge for stradaeasle on fb.  Ten more days to go.
I always thought these challenges help to improve an artist skills, and they do, if only they are thought as an end to a  means.  Sometimes we get overly critical.  That is never helpful to the creative process.

The last few days have been a struggle for me to just get through. This sketch happens to be one of my better attempts at setting up a still life and painting from whatever I arrange. The one thing that has peaked my interest is, purchasing tea pots.  I am waiting for my yellow tea pot, should get it soon.

Miss painting in oil , I did start the challenge working in oil and those will be posted  at a later time. Hope all is well with  all of you and keeping warm if you live in areas where it is winter.

Happy Painting everyone.


  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Une petite théière qui réchauffe le coeur et qui a une âme... j'aime la délicatesse qui s'en émane.

    Gros bisous 🌺
