Willow Pattern

I very occasionally do a still life painting. It can be a bit hard on the eyes if there is a very detailed pattern like Willow Pattern. The key is to give the impression of detail without actually doing too much, but enough! One thing about painting still life it doesn't move! The above painting is sold. The silver knob thing is a sugar shaker before you ask.

This week I needed an large oval dish for serving a meal. I called into the antique centre in Carmarthen and found an  F&Son, Art Deco "Carlton" Oval plate. It was probably worth about £30 but got it for £2.50. Unmarked just the job!
