"Teapot and Lemons" - 6" x 8" - Oil on Canvas

This is my second of the day.  I have a lovely little grey blue cast iron teapot that my daughter gave me as a gift.  I have seen them around and they come in a variety of colours including lime green and deep red and they make a really good cup of tea that stays hot.  This painting is not quite where I wanted it to be.  I may have to go back in tomorrow and tweak it just a little bit in a few spots.  Also, the colour is not true in this photograph for some reason.  Everything is a little too intense and the highlights on the lemons are invisible in the photograph but definitely there in the real painting.  I will try and re-photograph tomorrow.   

I'm hoping to be able to do two again tomorrow and get caught up.


  1. Very ambitious and very successful!
    You've got me wondering how you've kept the white and blue stripes so clean and perfect - in oils?
