Tea on the Patio, Still Life Painting in Oil

Tea on the Patio, 8"x10", oil on stretched canvas
(SOLD,thank you!!)

This is a piece I have been working on the past few days...it was actually taken from a photo I snapped of someone's porch chairs, I suppose I could have created a porch painting, but with it being summer I thought a patio was much more fitting.


I replaced the photo today as I realized last night I forgot to add the stems in the hydrangea floral, and I added a bit to the potted flowers...the blue still does not seem to show its true color, it is more of a cobalt on the teacups and periwinkle on the flowers in the foreground, the pink on the flowers is a richer shade of pink...the painting is much more vibrant in person....Paintings always look better in person, I promise! :o)
