Tea Cup Oil Painting

This painting really tested me on my ability to understand how much a white object absorbs it's surrounding colors. Also my ability to paint a convincing ellipse and other situations, like the fact that the warm light coming from the right hand side will produce a cooler red within the tablecloth as it recedes from the light. This was another of my favorites to paint, I threw in the spoon just because I like painting reflective surfaces.


  1. I have a similar octagonal plate which has given me fits. Nice job with the white.

  2. Hi Rita,

    I like this one the best beside all your anatomy studies. You do a very nice work in very different styles. I enjoyed to look to your paintings and drawings.

    Thanks so much to join my blog in Blog Catalog. Nice to meet you! :-)
