I’ve mentioned this before: porcelain is, for me, really one of the most difficult subjects to paint. This little teacup was no different.

On another note, I recently completed my portrait assignment for Different Strokes from Different Folks. It feels great to finish another portrait again — and an oil portrait at that! Visit my other blog, Art Studio, to read a little more about the painting. The direct link to the post is: Oil Portrait Painting.

In the Cup of Chocolate painting I posted yesterday, I used just three colors plus white: burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, yellow ochre and titanium white. For this painting, I substituted cadmium yellow lemon for the yellow ochre. I like how both turned out. I feel that using a very limited palette gives a painting an overall harmony.

Also, yesterday was the first day that I didn’t finish a painting. I did use my oil paints and worked on a new portrait though. If you’ve been following the Different Strokes from Different Folks blog, the latest challenge is the Year-End Portrait Swap. Ms. Jurick gave all participants photographs of other artists to paint from.

I started mine yesterday and am nearly finished with the underpainting. So far, so good. Below is a peek of what it looks so far.
