Red Coffee Mug, 6x6 Oil


I love to paint cups and mugs.  The eliptical shapes are a constant challenge.  If I don't get them exactly right, the painting won't read right.  Red can be a challenge, too (thanks, Valerie, for the tip about Perelyne Red!).  I have some new cups from my trip to Santa Fe, and they'll be working their way into the paintings soon!

  1. Looks like I could just pick it up and use it. Great job.

    Why is red so hard. When I try to use red in a bird, which I tried a cardinal once, I just couldn't photograph it to even put it up. It looked awful. So interesting reading this about red.
