Here's my grisaille ready for the colour glazes, I hope.
I think someone bent the lamp when I wasn't looking.

Here is a revised version of the lamp-I realized that I had not painted the table correctly.  I did revise the cup, but I realize that is still a little curvy, may still fix a little more.  Ray-I know what what you mean by the bend in the lamp, I spent hours trying to get mine straight.  Nice job with yours, after getting yours done, I know you must feel my pain.

thanks Val.  Since last post I did reshape the left side of the glass to match the right side, so it looks more balanced now :)

Gail, your lamp definitely looks as though it has a 100 watt bulb in it. 

Your painting is brilliant and I too love the detail in the lamp stand.  Nice work!   :congrats:

Amazing work on the lamp base, Gail. i hope I can do as well with mine. i found the shading of the vase made it look a little off round even though both sides were the same when I measured - same thing may have happened to yours - looks great revised.

 :clap: Lovely work both of you.   Will post mine tomorrow.   I can't wait to see these glazed...not sure how this is done but will soon find out tomorrow evening.  Can't wait...it is so exciting to learn something new.

very well done guys, two beautiful renditions :clap:

What is messing you around with the cup Gail is the symmetry - get the left and right hand side more equal, then the curves inside will be easier to judge.

thanks Nolan.  I did make the left side more like the right, and it is better, but thought I would wait to post until I have some colour on it.
