I love still lives, I can't deny it, and I love old crockery. I have also started collecting bright crockery for future additions to my paintings. A few months ago I picked up a beautiful (well I think it's beautiful) bright red enamel small teapot. The sales lady was saying how handy it would be for that one or two cups of tea instead of the usual 5-6 cup teapot. "Oh" I said, "I'm not going to use it. I'm going to paint it". I'm sure she thought I was daft. What do you think? (Opinions taken on the beautiful bit and the daft bit lol)
But, I'm getting side tracked, this week's letter is 'M'. I just happen to have some bright yellow MUGS that I picked up from an op shop a little while ago so thought I would do something with them. I first thought of a small oil painting, then moved on to a lino print, then considered stencilling. In the end I had so much fun manipulating them on the computer with Photoshop that I decided to present these images, starting with the original photo.
Now I'm really spoilt for choice. I can see how Photoshop can be a really awesome tool for future lino prints or just to transform everyday items into groovy pop art prints.
