Teapot and sweetpeas
I've deduced, I think, why it's been so hard to keep a sketchblog going when my painting is going quite well - I guess it's obvious... firstly there is not enough time, and also when one is spending six or seven hours a day in the studio, there's not much interesting to put in the sketchbook, of course. So here is a little painting I did a couple of weeks ago, to try and get my hand into gear again - my little brown teapot and the last of the sweetpeas. They are in a tiny little salt cellar, that's why they look so big, and the teapot is small too. The handle looks very wonky, but I am quite pleased with the shadows and reflected light in the foreground - some of which happened by happy accident.
