Here are my first three attempts at tea-pots. Again, you can see me stuggling to get the paint to do what I want it to do. The prairie-chicken tea pot is certainly the most sucessful. Unfortunately, on the other side of that pot I painted a turkey that didn't turn out nearly so well. On the other tea-pots, again, I painted the branches and stems with a brush and wasn't able to get the lines as thin and delicate as I wanted. Since I painted them I think I've overcome that problem.
