I’ve been planning this painting for a long time and am finally getting to work on it. I had to find the right elements – teapot, tea cup, and stargazer lily – to get the look I wanted. Luckily, I already had gold satin fabric for the background. I was going to iron it, but the natural folds and shapes the fabric had were very pleasing to the eye. Here is the inital underpaining. I have blocked in the composition with raw umber and a lean painting medium over a medium gray toned 16 x 20 canvas. After the canvas was toned and dried, the block in took about two hours. I am excited about this painting because the colors are so rich. Stay tuned for the next step.
