IA: teapot

Inspiration Avenue theme:  teapot.  Well, I can't draw a teapot.  Not and have it look much like a teapot.  All symmetrial and even and dimensional.  Unlike some Aussie friends I could name (Tracey!) - this is totally in her wheelhouse.


But, I do have a beautiful teapot we bought on our trip to China.  I have a camera.  I have PS Elements.  I make art! :)


I haven't used my camera artistically in months - it might be time to pull it out and remind myself why I love it so much!

  3. Yes, pull out that camera! What you have done here is fantastic! You've focused in on the wonderful details of your teapot & created a supporting background with rich texture!

  6. I thought the challenge was turquoise and lime, but learned today I was wrong. I love what you have done with your camera, though. Wish I had thought of something like that. OH RIGHT. I need a decent camera for something like that (grin). And PS doesn't do me much good when I don't have a camera that takes decent photos. But I always love your photos. They are always so artistic.

  13. I got side-tracked with this challenge, because like Elizabeth, I thought the challenge was turquoise & lime! Anyway, I think your tea pot is awesome & you photograph, very artistically done.

  15. I am so glad you pulled out your camera again... and that teapot looks amazing...and the background sets it off perfectly... funnily enough I was going to photograph an antique Japanese teapot in amongst the bamboo in our yard for a painting ... great minds think alike it would seem...xx
