What was your inspiration?
I love to paint roses. White roses are the most difficult thing to paint on porcelain because the "porcelain background canvas' is white, white paint would not show up if 'painted' on the porcelain. Consequently, the design must be 'wiped out' from laid color to bring the 'color' of the white rose out of the background.
What are you most proud of?
The ability to paint a white rose on porcelain.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Find a good teacher in your area. Read everything you can on porcelain/china painting. Look at pictures in books of RSGermany, RSPrussia, and other porcelain painters/designers for ideas.
