Following my look at black at the beginning of the year I decided to try painting with black, that is to say mixed blacks and darks. I searched for a good 'black' subject and found these little coffee cups. I think they are Italian looking at the size although I bought them at a car boot sale in the UK quite a few years ago.
I used a limited palette of ultramarine blue, van dyke brown, yellow ochre and white and I've included a few of the steps as I went along (when I remembered to take a photo).
I enjoyed painting this and I didn't think I would....just goes to show!
