The man's on a mission !!!

Really nice, love the colours & loose style - the tea cups are beautiful, I love Japanese stuff, so elegant & you really captured that, quicky or not !!!

Re: Japanese tea ceremony cups

Hi Celeste and Taz!
This was such a quickie I didn't figure anyone would take the time to say anything so I would like to say thank you both for taking the time.I had fun doing them.I want to see how well I can paint from limited palettes and still keep the values in place.

I really like this! The simplicity and the warmth of the palette is very appealing to me. What size is this one?

That's a wonderful practice Tony as it keeps more unity and lends sophistication to the painting, I think. Plus, painting quickly keeps it nice and loose, as does using a bigger brush. Keep up the good work. Don't you find the more you paint, the more you enjoy it?

Appreciate the direct approach and simplicity of subject and application. Nicely done.

Re: Japanese tea ceremony cups

this is so much different from your usual studied approach! You can almost feel the freedom in each stroke, very nicely done Tony

Re: Japanese tea ceremony cups

Nice!
I like the translucent feeling in the lighter coloured cups.
Good practice

Re: Japanese tea ceremony cups

Wow What a lot of comments.Thank you sooooooo much folks!
Ann ,this one and the flowers are sort of smaller than my usual.They are both 12x8. It is a warm feeling piece isn't it.
Celeste You are soo right about that.As soon as one comes to the end I get antsy to start another.I think I'M addicted
Hi Howard Simple is a nice change for me.I wasn't sure I could pull it off.
Hi Carol It is a zen thing!!
Hey Doc I can see now why you like the freedom we can all see in your art.It is so much more relaxing than my approach!
Hi Bobbo First time to meet you.Thanks for coming by!
Hi Maureen I wasn't sure the lighter ones would come across in this sort of painting but I am so glad you could see it!
