Antique Japanese Demitasse, Teacup

" Japanese Teacup "
Oil on gesso board
9" x 9"

This week is a busy one, seems my daily paintings will be more like a day and a half paintings. So I will fill in with a few paintings like this one. My goal with this painting was to have a bold simple composition to set off the detailed cup & saucer. This old teacup is small, more of a demitasse style. The cup is very translucent and I hope I achieved an impression of that.

Thanks, Mary.
It's the turquoise color that I couldn't wait to mix! The beautiful little vintage Japanese teacup was a fun challenge, to get the translucent feel of the thin porcelain.
