portrait of a teacup/Illustration Friday

I posted this a couple days ago, but now that I see that the prompt for IF is "fluid" the teacup seems like a perfect fit, especially since I am on my second cup of morning coffee. Happy Friday to everyone!

I worked on this little pastel painting yesterday and scanned the images into my computer at different stages as I was working. Sometimes when I want to get a different perspective on how something is progressing I will look at it in the mirror or scan it into the computer. When I finish it's interesting to go back and see it during the different stages. For this I worked on a sheet of cinnamon Mi-Teintes paper using the smoother side. I first did the little drawing in my sketchbook and then drew the cup on the colored paper with a pastel pencil. I mainly used Sennelier pastels.

Lovely teacup! The color and patterns and really nice. I started scanning stages of drawings and now I'm a total addict. Sometimes I'll have 8 or 9 of them and then I can choose which to post. People seem to like it! I always like to see them, too.

This is beautiful! Wonderful soft strokes and colors, and I LOVE watching it grow from scratch. Fascinating!
