Nectarines and Teapots

Nectarines and Teapots


I’ve been painting teapots for a number of years. These teapots are part of my collection that I set up outside on a glass table with mirrors and the fruit. I liked the reflections in the mirrors — they add great dimensional interest! It is a complex arrangement and the teapots seem to be in motion, almost dancing. The double shapes of the shadows were neat too. The only thing I didn’t think of when setting it up was how to paint the surface of the table. It was pebbly-textured and, finishing up, I decided on using Seurat’s pointillism.  I felt this was very successful and liked the final product.
