Blue Cup with Basket of Sprouting Onions


This is the first of many Cup Paintings.  I bought two of these attractive, contemporary cups in Florence – one grass green, and one traffic light red – during my time at the Angel Academy where I was a student on the Four Year Classical Realism Program (January 2010 – December 2013).  Then back in England some years later I bought more colours online from Germany where they are made.  And I shall paint each and every one!  Just search ‘cups’  on this website to find them as the collection grows.  The wonderful sprouting red onions are what we artists call ‘Perishables’ and they need a particular way to be painted.  And of course now these ones are only available to enjoy in the painting.
