step by step

Took advantage of Painter's iterative save function to record the process of a quick demo painting for a class.

I used that same sketch of a paper tea cup to make a sort of sloppy framework sketch
tea_cup_000

Blocked in the colors, mostly for the sake of value
tea_cup_001

Redefined areas and tones
tea_cup_002

Started finessing, adding detail and brightening and darkening areas
tea_cup_003

Last one. Worked in a tiny bit more detail and added some cooler hues to the shadows to balance out the green-y yellow.
tea_cup_004

It's still just a color sketch, but I think I'm good with it.
