I painted this baby when I was so enthusiastic about painting teapots and teacups that i insisted my teacher to teach me.... I have not finished my lesson yet but I was too eager to paint them. Keeping in mind about the things I've learned, I prepared this wood to paint this lovely teapot and teacup. I struggled a little to paint in the roses on the teacup. But quite happy with the end result. I'm yet to varnish the piece. Need to show my teacher to upgrade the skill especially the shading and highlights.
