This is our Happy Mug. If one of us says we need the Happy Mugs, we know which ones they are. Their history was we bought them at a time when we needed a shot of happy in the morning, and they looked exactly like they could provide. They’ve not let us down!
This watercolor began life as a drawing for Brenda Swenson’s 75-Day Challenge.
Watercolors seduced me with this cup, which begged to be painted.
It was drawn with a grey Cocoiro pen, which pretty much disappeared in the opaque watercolor undercoat. I so seldom use opaque colors, but for this pottery piece the Daniel Smith Warm Grey seemed right — and other transparent color went over it.
Other colors were Venetian Red, Paynes Grey, and Quin Scarlet. And colored pencil!
