I searched a long time to find a very nice tea cup and saucer to paint. I loved this one because it has a wonderful shape and delicate appearance. I remember my grandmother having a hutch with many different styles and kinds of thin white china cups just like this one.

I went shopping for things to paint and just kept finding cups to purchase. The thing is they were mostly all white. Honestly, I found all white with the greatest shapes and one black one which will make it into another painting in the future. I also really enjoyed working with a very limited palette.
