'Pot, Brush and Fruit' cont...

'Pot, Brush and Fruit'
12" x 16"
oil on stretched canvas

I chose this ceramic pot to paint because of the complicated pattern. I thought it was going to be a challenge and I wasn't wrong!! When painting a pattern like this it's too easy to become pre-occupied with the intricacies of the pattern and subsequently overwork it.  I knew I had to call it a day when I found myself faffing with detail...always  a good sign to stop! 
Some news...I have a painting appearing in the June issue of Leisure Painter (out 21st June) The painting is part of a feature on the LAS (Lincolnshire Artists' Society) Sales site. The painting is 'Delicious Biscotti'.
