This is my latest commission piece. Kate has a lot of vintage china that she has collected over the years.. This set had been in the family for generations but most pieces are chipped, cracked or worn. I gave it new life in a watercolour and invented the pattern on a new cup as all the cups had been thrown away.

It is a really pretty set but sadly has no Makers Mark to identify it. It does have a Pattern Number of 2/615 but this doesn’t give us a date.  If you have any idea as to the date of the tea-set please let me know and I will pass the information on.

I really enjoyed painting this commission. The colours in the china are very similar to the lovely patchwork table-runner and the client’s curtains. I am pleased that I have managed to convey the light streaming through the window on a sunny day.

Do get in touch if you would like me to bring your care worn china to life in a commissioned watercolor.

    A lovely painting, Patsy! Iove the quilted runner under the tea set. I’ve enjoyed looking at your new website and blog:)

      Thank you Sue. I liked the quilted runner too and thought it would look good in my composition rather than just working with the bare table.

    Hi Patsy,

    What a lovely site. I’ve been enjoying looking at your paintings and photographs. Love the Jubilee Tea painting and there’s a particular card with a view from one of my favourite places -I expect you can guess which it is.

      Hi Sue,
      I’m glad you enjoyed looking at my paintings and photographs. The card you like most must be the view I sketched from our favourite holiday cottage, Seawatch, in Cadgwith. I wanted to call the card `Seawatch’, but my husband said I hadn’t painted enough sea so I named it `Idyllic View’ instead! We have booked to go there next Christmas already. I can’t wait!
