Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

The challenge continues...

I never realized how much thought could go into painting! Trying to recreate the color of brass is amazingly difficult! Then there's the added challenge of representing all of those reflections on the brass teapot. Painting the woodgrain was also quite a thought provoking experience. I'm not finished, by a long shot. I'll have to keep going back and working out lots of details. Whew! It gives one a headache, but it is an intriguing process.

The palette gets messier...

By the way, this is the photo I'm painting from. Try it!

All in all, I'm loving this experience!
Go with God!

  1. Hi Lisa! Great painting!
    I was wondering why you picked my painting for the thumbnail of Rookiepainter in your sidebar?
