9th Lesson - Teacups

Now we are adding the greens.  We've mixed Cobalt and Lemon together to make a bright green which immediately enhances the whole painting.  I have a dark, medium and a light green mixed on my palette before I start.  Using a No.0 pointed taklon brush I quickly stroke the different tones of greens to give the impression of leaves.  Just make sure the cup at the back is a little more out-of-focus than the teapot in front, so feather off these colours slightly as you go.
