"Turkish Coffee"

Art class has me captivated with still life again. This time with a very cute Turkish coffee pot. The composition I chose was the half pot with a pattern in the background . I quite like the contrast between the background and the pot.All done with my prismacolour pencils!

Cropping a picture is a great way to play with composition, as the main feature is to the side of the page. With this pot it is interesting as the pot is really the main feature, but the spout, which is so long and lean, takes "centre stage". hehe .HHmmm Turkish coffee would be really yummy right about now!!!

I just had an idea ! a plate of turkish delight ! A still life with the coffee pot, and a plate of turkish delight!! Now we are talking , lol.........
