no rain, no flower

We really wouldn't appreciate happiness if we didn't feel the pain. Here is my tea cup interpretation of itteacup-no-rain-no-flower

What was the process?  pencil drawing, masking the areas that look white now, painting with watercolors, pen pattern detail, little shading, taking pictures.

And the many hours in between figuring out color palette, interpretation, details, working and reworking some areas, pauses of life... the process is always a good learning journey.
