Blue Mountain Pottery - A Work in Progress

I woke up today to the first snow of the year. It is a good thing that I already had my snow tires put on all the vehicles and just had to watch out for the people on the road who weren't prepared for the road conditions.

Today at KAGS our theme was "Cool" Colours and we had Blue Mountain Pottery, pastel yellow, green and bowls, purple and soft pink stuffed animals.

I chose to do a number of pieces of the Blue Mountain pottery and made my own arrangement of them which was a lot different than how things were set up there.

I brushed in the background using vertical strokes with mixtures of alizarin crimson, Antwerp blue and  French ultramarine blue.

I will post this painting at a later date once more of it has been completed.
