#139, "Lemon with Your Tea?", oil, 6" x 6"

Okay. One more posting before I head for Mexico for 2 weeks.  I did this one on day 3 of the class. I am practicing seeing subtle transitions. The trick is in the paint mixing. I can see the values, but mixing the painting and matching the values is the tough part. Not only getting the value right, but getting the color right. Also I am practicing mixing each stroke separately from the last. This little teapot was harder to paint than it might seem. Especially with it's top askew.  The Ray for the Day is "Lemon with Your Tea?"
