Yesterday I saw two art shows in Seattle. The Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough, Kenwood House tresures from London, at the Seattle Art Museum. The Frye Art Museum was showing Nicolai Fechin's beautiful paintings. A must see.
So no painting for yesterday.
Today's painting is another teapot. White,it is so much fun to paint an object that is white. You see so much reflected color dancing around on the object. Try it.
