Picked up a set of these little cups from a local potter at the Rappahannock Art League Gallery in Kilmarnock. He said they were wine cups, but they really are just the perfect size for a little taste of Sake. I love that each cup is unique and have a wonderful bit of lopsided charm. I did this little 6X6 inch pastel on a sanded surface I prepared myself.
I took some gesso and mixed in about twice the amount of pumice recommended then added black acrylic paint. Two coats. Came out a nice uniform grey with just a hint of brushstrokes.
