Big Gulp Tea Time
© A.K.SIMON - Big Gulp Tea Time - 6"x6" oil on linen panel
This is a quick study arranged by Donna Noice on Tues. The picture appears a little "glarey" because I just photographed it outside and it is "really" wet.
As I was painting this thinking, "man what a big cup for tea," I heard Barb discussing her drawing with Donna and they were commenting on the cup size to vase proportion. If you think about it you would be drinking a half of a vase of coffee/tea in this cup. That would be one huge "pick-me-up" in the AM. Gotta think about those portion sizes - oh yeah, I guess black coffee doesn't count - of course bitter, black, smelly stuff is calorie free! (not a coffee drinker)
There are things I would have done differently in this painting if starting over but moving on to the next.
