Espresso cups with lavender and roses

Espresso cups, lavender and roses

Here's a change from the usual dish of landscapes and seascapes that I serve you! Another still life, and this time in watercolours and gouache.
Between 2008 and 2010 I used to have a tiny stone cottage for a studio, called Toad Hall. Placed on the village green in a pretty village the studio openings were great fun. We hung bunting over the doorway and filled the kitchen with the aroma of coffee and plates of cakes.
Anyway while I was working in that small space I painted lots and lots of still life's and cakes, usually in acrylics. That was before the plein air bug had completely overtaken me. It was my 'afternoon tea' phase!


Thank you for your words!
