Tuscan Vase


Tuscan Vase

Finally -- a quiet evening! YAHOO! In keeping with her generous nature and continuing her incredible support of my 'sketching every night' Rebecca (owner of the B&B) brought me this AWESOME Tuscan Vase to paint -- one of my Christmas gifts! She said she wanted it 'immortalized' in paint ...! LOL What a sweetheart!

I just ADORE the size, the shapes -- the COLORS .. and so I sketched it Tuesday evening and finished it last night as we sat by the warm, crackling fire sipping tea and chatting.

Now THAT'S the way to spend an evening!

Oh you did such a great job with the rounding!!! It looks truly three dimensional to me. Love the colors, the shape and the decorative touches. And what a pleasant sounding evening. I love a fire going in the fireplace but unfortunately our sofa is now in front of the fireplace.
Another gorgeous one Lin. Perfect for an apron!
Hugs,

Lin - Great job on the shape and the shading of the vase! You sound like you had a perfect evening of painting in front of the fire. Now that I'm home I'm trying to catch up and post some of my work from the trip. I took so many photos of barns (in NC and SC) and can't wait to paint a few. Thanks for your suggestions.
