A Later Time for Tea

Not to worry Derek your perseverance paid off. Superb

Thanks dennis, I hope she does answer

I could'nt imagine anyone feeling other than flattered, it's a lovely work and the kettle just wonderful, with great reflections. Well done Derek.

I really love this one Derek. The kettle is fantastic and the vibrant colours pull together so well. I really appreciate the work you put into this and it's paid off.

Cheers Rachel, I dwelt much longer on it as it proved more difficult than I thought. I am aiming for more searching subjects.

I love it Derek, it's bold and expressive, right up my street.

Thanks Alan, it's Angie's composition, I have only borrowed it as long she is happy. Not plagiarism is it.

What makes it for me is the dreat palette used which I guess is yours - good outcome Derek

Thanks Michael, yes it was on the palette anyway.

The under painting and glaze has given it a real modern feel Derek, love the spoon!

I LOVE the way you've handled this one Derek - especially the kettle !

Thank you Fiona, Lynne and Gudrun. I am very grateful with all the comments in here, thanks again.

I absolutely love this. One of my favourite painters is Vouillard, and for some reason this reminds me of his pictures. And also of Bonnard, whose exhibition in the RA once reduced me to tears of emotion!<br />It is the colours and textures and liveliness that I love about it.

Beautiful colour work Derek....I just love all the colours you have incorporated into the kettle!!

Thanks Shirley and Chandra, thinking of framing and maybe exhibiting somewhere

Lovely colours here Derek!

You&#39;ve done well, Derek. The boldness and liveliness of the marks really add your touch to the piece.

Thank you Seok, have received a nice comment from Angie so that&#39;s OK.

Hang on Studio Wall

My take on an inspiring set up by Angie Wood in here. I have contacted her to explain things but no reply yet and of course if she objects I will delete. Must admit I used some brushes in this ; curves and lines, well I must try and recover some skills.. Not easy, very shaky but got somewhere near, using a pinkish overpaint all over first. I discovered transparent white and use this as a glaze. The drawing is poor (kettle handle) and the whole thing took me into two days.

Eleventyeight as my hashing pals called my new age recently, it's supposed to sound better. Trying to paint every day in acrylics using only expired credit/debit cards, and partially succeeding as they're only for me and not show these days.
