I bought these little cups and saucers at the cafe (now defunct) downstairs from my previous studio. I love the yellow, periwinkle and rose cups with turquoise accents. What a challenge to paint though, because the colors are slightly muted but still saturated. Why am I doing so many coffee themed Daily Paintings? Certainly not because they're in demand :). I am challenged by the shift in elipses as your eye hits the rim of the cup, the base of the cup, the saucer top - throw in a handle, and it's a morning's eye exercise! There's that and I love good coffee!
