"Cuppa Tea"

This colored pencil art piece was based on a photo shoot, at home, involving a porcelain tea jar, a tea cup, and fruit.  Multiple rearrangements of the items, to arrive at this particular composition.  The shadow edges on the right are deliberately made to disappear into the back ground, so attention remains focused on the highlighted areas.
