China White.

China White.

Great textures Tessa.

Tessa I think this is smashing. Painting objects of white, or black for that matter is quite a challenge.

A great result Tessa.

Thank you Dennis, Carole, Fiona, Cristina and Marjorie. Fiona, you’re right, when I saw the set up of white China and a white cloth, I nearly ran for the door, but glad I persevered!

Beautiful nuances of colour in light and shadow Tessa. A classy still life.

Well done Tessa, that's a super result without doubt!

Thank you Carole and Alan. Thanks for yourvadvice on this Alan, certainly helped.

Lovely work tessa, I like the softness and how you rendered the withe with many colours hues .

Tessa it’s worked brilliantly . You took all that excellent advice on board. Worth a frame .

Lovely Tessa - beautiful subtle colours and love the cloth.

A lovely warm feel to it and it would look well on any wall

Lovely colours in the white.

Hang on Studio Wall

Still life set up at class last week, nearly binned early on, as I wasn’t pleased with it, but I put it on the zforum and had some good advice so it’s survived the drop!
