I'm happy to say I've finished the scones painting from the July 'what's on your easel thread'! :) As promised here is the end result...

Delicious! Managed to have a cream tea when I was home in July - funny the things you miss!

What a scrumptious finish. The only cream teas I get these days are the ones I make. Shame the U.S. never really got into them.

Wonderful, Hazel. Makes me want to go out to the kitchen and whip up a batch of scones--even though it's nearly 9:30 at night here! Yum! I love scones and I find your painting of them a delight. As an ignorant American, however, I've always wondered what is clotted cream?

And, now that it's been mentioned here, what is a cream tea? Sounds good, too.

I am so glad you like it - I have only a few paintings that I'm happy with and this is one of them ;)

Well I hope I have this correct... I think a cream tea just means scones with jam and clotted cream. You'd have it in the afternoon with tea (although I don't like tea it doesn't stop me!). There's Devon scones which don't have 'bits' in like the ones I painted and the other kind with sultanas.

Found this definition of clotted cream: "A thick cream made primarily in England by heating milk until a layer of cream forms on its surface that is then cooled and skimmed off. Also called Devonshire cream."

It's a traditional thing - Devon is a county in the SW of England, has lovely seaside places but you can eat them anywhere you like :p

It is luscious but not very healthy!

Pop goes the world. Very nice and cheerful in color. Did you mean to turn it into a big mouth or was that a happy accidental?

Well, I was really off base then. I thought the cream tea was a beverage perhaps made with tea with frothy cream in it. Ha! ;)

Good explaination. I've learned something new.

Luscious indeed and ranks in the 'comfort food' category. I'm definitely inspired to make a fresh batch of scones. Thanks for sharing your painting with us all.

Hi everyone & thanks for the encouragement... I've not done very many paintings recently and you've all made a big difference to helping me put brush to canvas, I really appreciate it :D

I didn't see the smile in it Wayne until you said - that is a happy accident :)

I'm a bit stuck for motivation again so I'm going to look at the current 'what's on your easel'!
