"Roses and Lace" SOLD
8 1/4 x 11 1/4 watercolor $200
Finished! What a bunch of fun this was to paint, interesting and hard, as well. The silver gravy boat was probably the most challenging as painting silver, glass or chrome is all about reflections. There is no silver paint here, just the white of the paper plus all the colors reflected onto the gravy boat. Click on it to see the refections better; even the lace is reflected in the gravy boat. The lace itself is difficult to paint, too, as you leave the white of the paper for the white lace and paint all the little holes in, thinking about shadows to make it stand out. Your comments are appreciated.

  1. This is really pretty. You are so good at painting lace. And the chenille you posted the other day in "Still Life with Begonia" is excellent.
