Another Vision of Suzanne’s Garden


My friend Suzanne has a beautiful garden that has been an inspiration for many paintings in the past few years. I painted this one from a scene she had set up with some of her plants and old tea pots. My favorite part of this painting was working on the subtle little washes that created the shadows on the pottery. I glazed several layers of thin paint in various pigments to create the soft colors and shadows. I also liked the contrast of the light pottery on the right with the dark background fence. Thanks, Suzanne, for another inspiring view! The original to this painting is still available. You can see a larger view on my website at http://watercolorworks.com/GardenTeapots.htm
