Apple With Teapot SOLD
This is the burnt umber sketch and value plan I started with...at least the midtones and lights. I can see how my composition is going to work. Maybe the teapot could be a bit less centered, but I do like the balanced feeling.

Well, the result looks better in person. The green-gray of cloth and background is not really that gray....more blue-green. Walking my dog, I carried my clippers and a grocery bag to collect plant parts from tract landscaping. (Really! Not from people's yards!) I've used these branches many times. Don't know what they are, but they have tiny round blue pods that open into pink flowers. The teapot was lots of fun to paint...white, but not white at all!
