This is my first attempt at a painting after the workshop with Terri Ford. I think the foliage on the trees is awkward but I am learning. The blue haze is too much and to patchy, but it was an interesting try. I'll post my first two from the workshop next

I wanted to reverse the contrast technique I had used last year by carving though lighter slips to expose darker clay underneath. The top colored slip is a lighter shade of celedon compared to the celedon I used on the white clay. The contrast is more subtle and the darker clay body has some interesting variations seen as a dark speckle.
Although I found this experiment interesting, my next series will be on white porcelain, which will be glazed with clear soon.
