I Love this painting Sharon, especially the lemon slices on the plate... but for my untrained eye your cup of tea looks slightly more like Im looking down on a flat plate than the inside of a cup ...oh goodness that sounds awful :-\  .... Im not sure what suggestion to offer but perhaps if you create a bit more shadow on the upper right hand side of the cup and also between the lemon slice and  the cup it might create the looking into rather than the onto look.  Im not sure maybe the photo doesnt show the contrast as much as the original.

Lovely work Sharon - it looks more lemony now  O0

I'm afraid that as a Brit I am somewhat of an anomaly.... I loathe tea!! Coffee for me all the way, the stronger the better!

 :thankyou: Fi and Patricia! And I drink coffee every morning, Fi - with cream mind you! Tea is my afternoon beverage of choice! My husband drinks espressos at night - I have no idea how he does that and can still fall asleep!
Cheers,
Sharon

Lovely subject Sharon, I have one comment it is the orange it looks a bit flat you will have to add some tonal value. Hope  this helps. Oups I looked again is it a piece of orange in coffee or tea.  Maybe then it should be more of a brown color.  I though it was an orange with a quarter cut off.

Thanks Mary Lou and Danielle! And I appreciate the suggestions, Danielle - but I already took the painting to the framer last week when I delivered his dog painting to him. And it's actually a lemon in the tea, that's turned orange from the tea color! Oh well...
Cheers,
Sharon

And here my painting is framed! I love the yellow with the silver combo of the frame, and the double mat with a hint of yellow ochre. Now I just need to find a tea lover!
Cheers,
Sharon
