Tea Pot and Mayer's Handbook - WIP

First pass on new set up, yet another tea pot. I like the shapes in them. The green book is a very old copy of Ralph Mayer’s The Artist's Handbook of Materials and Techniques. Mayer’s book is a excellent reference book for artists, it opened my eyes to a lot of the traditional procedures and materials of oil painting. If I had not discovered this book years ago, buried on the University library shelf, I would have probably quit art school.

You can find it as a free download in several places online.
