Hi, I recently purchased this gravy boat from Ebay, they described it as being "flow blue". Not sure if it is but I love blue and white. This is my first time to paint it, the shape made it a bit challenging. I didn't plan for it to end up directly centered on the canvas but the left side of our brain wants things to be centered and spaced perfectly and I think it made me do it, lol. Funny how that happens, I sketched it out in thinned down paint first but as I made adjustments it moved somehow. I have started a larger painting using it again in a more elaborate set up and I am painting it so it definitely looks like flow blue. This is oil on a 8 x 10 canvas, not signed yet but I think it's done. A good attempt I think for my first try.
Have a great weekend
