Daily painting Practice - Teapot and Lemons

No preliminary this time, just jump in and do a block in of the darks and lights.

A little more fussing with the highlights and I'm done.( I am still sticking with my 2 hour time limit) I have yet to do a lemon or orange skin that really pleased me. The texture and the highlights are a puzzle I have not figured out. More practice!

Teapots are so much fun to paint. I think it is the strange shape that makes it so interesting. I changed the background and the base color in my little shadow box by using colored paper. It is good to switch things around a bit and get your eyes exercising with new light and color.
