Welcome to my art blog. I am

and advice on how to paint in oils.

Today, we decided to go back to the teacup at the back and tidy up. I feathered the flowers and shadows off so that they were softer. The shape of the cups and teapot has been the biggest challenge for me. I have been continually correcting the 2 saucer shapes and lip of the cups. Looking at the photo now, I see I still have to get some of my background colour and bring it down into the top of that back cup to lower the edge a bit. I have also redarkened the tablecloth between the teapot and cup to bring the teapot forward.
