Yellow Pot with Green Apples

I painted this still life this afternoon to prepare a lesson for the intermediate watercolor class I am teaching at Riverside Art Center.  The painting is 11" x 14" and it is painted on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper from a source photograph from Wet Canvas by AnnaKate. I took some compositional liberties by moving the tea cup down in front and overlapping the pot and adding an apple in front. (see below)  I fell in love with this yellow tea pot when I first saw the photograph.

Beautiful Barb, and I think the changes in your composition added a bit of lightness...the real set up seems a little 'compressed'. Wish you a nice Easter !

Thanks, Jane! I hope you had a nice Easter also - ours was wonderful. I also thought the composition in the photo was compressed and all on one line.
