Crab Apple Tea

24″ x 18″ 140 lb. watercolor paper
$150 Unframed



 
This painting had some challenges including making the light reflecting through the glass look realistic. I like how the handle and the bottom of the container turned out. I first thought I would make the background a dark blue-green; but the contrast of the black, especially with the light coming from the far back right, seemed to work better.
I like that the glass and liquid distort the images in the tea container especially magnifying the crab apple. I probably should have made the doily a darker gray; but once I’d put the holes into the pattern, it was difficult to change the background.
