Two old mugs and a new one

I love your kitchen sink dramas Diana and your taste in mugs :)

Really like this - the reflected light works very well

Hi Diana, as usual, you've captured the light so well - and love the Puffin mug!

Great selection of mugs in this charming watercolour Diana.

As always great lighting and technique.

Nice composition Diana!

Beautifully described superb composition excellent handling all round Diana

Very clever work Diana, but the light work overshadows (excuse the unintended pun) even the excellent mugs. Lovely stuff.

Thank you Val. I’m very particular about the mugs I drink yea from 😁 Thank you Heather. I used some orange and yellow base washes Hello Jenny and thank you . There is a RSPB sanctuary on the cliffs near me at Bempton. I bought the puffin mugs there. Thank you Carole. I like buying mugs ! Thank you Stephen. This place in my kitchen is wonderful for its lighting. I’m not bored yet 😁 Thank you Tanusree. They just caught my eye on the draining board. Thank you Dennis. I appreciate your opinion. Thanks Jim. The light in the ceramics is really subtle but adds interest.

Another little corker, Diana.

Wow, a powerful picture Diana...... well done!

Thank you Shirley and Guy. I used a warm undercoat on the mugs which seems to have given a lovely depth to both the colour and the actual ceramics.

Love your still life paintings Diana and this is another super design.

Thank you Willie. I’m quite pleased with the latest paintings. Old mugs is probably very fitting for me 😄

Half sheet watercolour on Saunders Waterford heavy, Not paper. I wanted to capture the warmth of the reflected colour so put some yellow washes as s base in the mugs.
