Photo of still life painting in progress by Rita Romero.I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I was getting anxious to get back to this painting. After another 6 hours or so, I have finished the teapot, continued working on the cup and saucer and started blocking in the flower. In the next session, I should be able to finish the flower and foreground. After that, it will be a matter of making adjustments to color and value with glazes to finish it.
