"Tea Time Step 2"

8" x 10"
Oil on Canvas Board

After the painting has set overnight I started to block in the Lemons with Cadmium Lemon plus a little Cadmium Yellow plus a little white.

Next I applied dark purple into the lace holes, plus outlined the tea bag and saucer. The next step was to add the dark purple shadow inside the cup.

After studing the design I realized I need to move the 2 slices of lemon on the left over. The paint was pretty wet, so I will put this aside until tomorrow.

I have found if I get the canvas too wet I have a better chance of keeping my color clean if I let it dry overnight. So we will finish it tomorrow.
