Deco Tea

(6 x 6 inches)
15 x 15cm
Oil on Gessobord

This was an attempt to 'loosen up' a little. Usually when painting larger objects I'd choose a larger canvas size, but I decided to stay small and paint with as big a brush as I could muster.

I'm REALLY happy with it as exercise for me to paint a bit looser. I have a tendency to fuss over the small stuff but when you paint with a larger brush, you can't do that.

I have had this Art Deco style teapot for years. It's modern, not truly Art Deco. I almost threw it out once or twice. Glad I didn't. I knew one day it would come in handy.
