Get ready for a slew of boring studies! I was inspired by Carol Marine's use of objects lying about as subjects and she also mentioned how difficult white ceramics where particularly challenging. Boy was she right. This is a coffee mug that was on my desk, and though a little greener and darker than pure white, it was very challenging. So, I did a bunch of 'em, and am posting them in order. More interesting paintings to appear in a few days.
