The Overflowing Cup 11

Further work on this - and have it in higher resolution to better show some of the detail... for some reason, the color is not showing as strong as is in real life, so not to presume is a pale work...

The Overflowing Cup 8

while haven't gotten to the bottom of the folded section of the curtain, decided to do some on the rest of it, to see how it looks... hopefully, will get the rest of the fold section done tomorrow [the cold is clearing faster than had hoped]...

The Overflowing Cup 7

Got in more time today as, along with the cold [28 this morn in Tampa] weather, acquired one rarely gotten cold :-(... so - stayed in all day, rendering off and on all day...

The Overflowing Cup 6

A bit of progress - the hand/wrist. for some reason, was not as bothersome... note the size of the nib being used for coloring the curtain...

re - Heritage

originally it was to be a more complex work, with this as being on the right a wee, and another object, a photo of ancestors in an ornate frame on the other side... but could not find good source material to use for the oldtime photo imitation, so went with this in a smaller size... the image was deliberately vague so could be used to show a female or male child with an even more vague person aside... had just finished the Auel books, and so the idea of the bone handled ladle appealed to me, to see if could imagine such a thing... and it seemed to work all around, making for a nice small painting in b/w...

a further note, in case not considered - heritage can be from the past, OR beginning now into the future [one way of looking at the youngster in reflection]...

Finally got a photo of my rendering, Heritage... 7"x5" acrylic black ink on Stonehenge pad paper, stippled with crow quill nib...

The Overflowing Cup 3

The fold is now essentially done, tho may go over more to intensify the curve... and next is either [or both] going on and finish the shelf grisaille, or begin coloring the curtain [after, of course, getting the curve more intense]...

The Overflowing Cup 2

For those interested, this is what am now contending with in getting to doing artworking for the time being, as there is stress on the outside nerves when stippling such as cannot for now carry on for longer than 10 minutes a stretch without much pain developing... this does help some, and probably will get one of those used for carpel tunnel syndrome in the hope that will be even better [while this not show, there is a rice paddle behind, underneath all the elastic bandage wrapping, the handle going up into the first section of the little finger]... hopefully, in another month of exercising to strengthen the muscles back there, this will not be needed as much [or better still, not at all]... time will tell, of course - in the meantime, onward with the rendering...
