Pastel Painting, Tea Cup
This is what is in the works today. I find that when working this small, I have to get it near completion to "see" the errors in ellipses, etc. This looks a little dirty. I was putting some of the red orange from the background in the cup and of course when mixed with blue, you get gray. I will touch this up and work on the front edge of the ellipse,a little high on the handle side. I'm pretty happy with it. What do you think? It is soft pastels on Ampersand Pastelbord, 5 x 7 inches. It may look good framed in a blue frame to match the Latte in Blue when it is finished again.
I took a couple of days off from posting. Larry had a birthday! Happy Birthday, belated that it is. A dinner in Austin on Wednesday evening so we could all be there. Larry was taking photos of the Capitol before dinner and was interviewed on KVUE and made the news. KVUE was doing a story on the historical preservation of the view of the Capitol.
And, there was the fourth UT Baseball game on Tuesday. Horns won 9 - 4. I did not take a photo, can you believe it? Missed those snapshots of the pitchers. I went with Janice, a girls' day out.
