Four Cups and Fish (2017)


Watercolor on coldpress paper.
Date: April 16, 2017
Size: 11in x 8in

This painting started as a monochromatic, naturalistic/realistic study of four mugs on a light tan cutting board against a white background. 

I added color to the mugs instead, made the cutting board more interesting, and altered the background. I couldn't help adding fish since the first layers of the cutting board looked like an empty koi pool. 

I'm extremely pleased with this piece.
