Teapot - a Study

This piece was one of my earlier attempts at the 'colour of white' challenge on the Daily Paintworks Challenge. I like the teapot but am less happy with the patterened fabric. The fabric does not receed into the background at the top of the painting the way it should, I need to employ both aerial perspective and linear perspective, which I found difficult through such a short distance. Any suggestions?

  1. Yes, Mary, I can help. If the background is lightened it will recede into the distance if you keep the intensity of the color in the foreground. I see that you were attempting to darken as it receded, which is understandable, but the opposite is actually what will work.You can use a light wash that will soften the colors and intensity as it recedes into the background.
