WC Still Life Duo Challenge #1


On Wet Canvas they are doing a challenge to set up just two objects and paint them, then remove one of the objects and add another. Paint again, then remove the oldest object and add something new, so that you always only have two objects. I think we are supposed to do a series of 6. I decided to join Marta and Casey in this challenge, I just loved what they were doing and I love a good challenge. Making just two objects come together to make a nice compostition will be a good lesson. I really need to think about the overall compostion of things as I set them up. Here is my first one, it is a teapot that my oldest daughter made in a ceramics class. I just love it although I have never heated water in it. I did this in watercolor and think that I will do the next one in Pastel.

It is beautiful. I love the ceramic texture and the reflection on the tea strainer. I'll keep checking your series.

I love your work in watercolors, a somewhat unforgiving medium. You really captured the textures. My favorite part is the tea strainer and its reflection on the teapot. I always look forward to your artwork.

Gorgeous, gorgeous color, Désirée! This is wonderful. I'm going to work on setting up our blog today and finish my 4th - life just seems to have gotten out of my control lately.
