A Dozen Teapots
This week’s featured painting is “Tea with Oranges” from 2017. It is done with oil on linen, and measures 9 x 12 inches.
I have well over a dozen teapots in my studio, and a few of them have been in multiple paintings. But as far as I can recall, this painting is the only time I’ve used this particular teapot, aside from a few studies.
That is unfortunate, because it’s a lovely object. Not only does it have a simple and traditional blue and white glaze, but the shape captures the light in a beautiful way, as though it were flowing across the surface.
