tea and strawberries

these were done from photos posted by Misswiss , they were just fun to do ... the first one was done wet on dry and I didn´t use mask but skratched the whites on the cut strawberry  carefully so I don´t ruin the paper I painted around the highlights on the big strawberry

This one was also done wet on dry trying to use the white of the paper for the china ...but I could have done it better with nicer tones ... then I redid the background for I had a dark huge spot somewhere ... I tried to lift it off then did it again ... I am happy with the tea though used burnt sienna and purple with a touch of burnt umber
