Vintage Teapot Update

"Vintage Teapot" 9 x 12" Colored Pencil on Wallis Sanded Paper

I've been trying to finish this one, not there just yet but a couple more hours and I should be there.

I still have work to do on the bulbous part of the teapot and the painted flowers. Then checking all my edges...softening some, strengthening others. And lastly making any adjustments including signing it.

I find this piece intriguing because it is so dramatic yet delicate. Beautiful job.

Thank you Holly....if I could just get it finished ;-)

Thank you Jennifer..the pencils do blend together. I use Coloursofts and they do react to the sanded board a bit like really hard pastels.

Thank you K.! Thanks for stopping in and taking the time to comment. I appreciate it.

Thank you Nicole. My pastel instructor will ask questions like "what color is the air?" and when she first asked me I laughed, but now, believe it or not, I'm starting to "see" it.

Thank you Doris! Thank you also for stopping in to comment. I do so appreciate the "company".
