Susan's Teapot

Here is the latest painting I've finished while painting with my artist friends at the ArtRetreat. Susan Chesley came with some 8x10 colored photos of this darling little teapot (the silly girls actually sang the little song today!) and apples that she'd started. Of course, then several of us wanted to paint it also. This is quarter sheet, mostly AJ paints, no masking on the teapot and several darker leaves in the right corner that I've added after making this photo. It's funny how I can always see something else that's needed after I think it's finished. This was a joy to paint as I love, love, love teapots.


  1. Delightful, Mollie! Such clear colors and effective use of complementary colors. This is a cheerful painting, beautifully painted. I love it!

  2. Thanks Christiane and Pat...I've got it cropped really too close as the red check tablecloth goes across both sides and really adds to the composition and flow. I'm too lazy to rephotograph it..ha.

  3. It really is a fun painting. Nice job.
