Take 1, 2 & 3 :: Prise 1, 2 & 3

My mother gave fancy teacups to my little sister, who in turn has handed them over to me — so this is my chance to paint these dainty teacups. They look easy to paint, but I struggled. I struggled with my shadows — I always do — so after being unsatisfied with my first attempt, I ended up doing three. Let me know which one that you prefer? And is there anyone out there that has a recipe for shadows? I know that they should be a complementary colour, but phew! Not enough water or too much water on top of that. All in all I am happy with my teacups as when I paint, I am happy -)

Ma mère a donné de belles tasses à thé à ma soeur, qui à son tour me les a données. Donc voici ma chance de peindre ces beaux objets qui ont de l’air si facile à peindre… mais vraiment pas! Donc insatisfaite de ma première tasse de thé, j’en ai repaint deux autres, pour faire un trio. Dites-moi celle que vous préférez le plus? Et quelqu’un d’entre vous avez-vous une recette pour les ombrages? Moi ce que je fais est plutôt de prendre la couleur complémentaire, mais si vous avez une autre solution, j’aimerais bien la savoir. J’ai finalement eu le temps de peindre ce soir, et quand je peins, je suis heureuse )
