It's the first time I have painted a cup and saucer and I couldn't resist putting some tea in the cup!
My students will be tackling this soon, a good subject to practise graduating tone as it wraps around the cup light to dark. The spoon and tea will be optional for them :-)
The metal spoon you would think is light being a silver colour but its actaully quite dark. I'll have to include a biscuit next time I paint this set.
It's 'Woods' china in Iris colour from the 1950's.
