Teapot and Fuji Apple

Ah, it's been awhile since I've painted this teapot, and I don't think I'll ever get tired of it! Every time I paint it, it seems to come out looking a little bit different - and I like the dark, lavendar-ey mood it's evoking in this panting. Most of the colors I used to paint this "brown" teapot are actually what I would consider purples, except for the darkest darks, and a few highlighted areas where I rubbed the paint away to reveal the burnt sienna undertone.

This rich browns and dark dark purples in this teapot are spectacular! Love the highlights and reflections. Excellent work!
