That is so beautiful and reminds me of the handpainted china my Uncle use to do .... gorgeous work!
dottyeb answered:
Some of the finest porcelain painters over the years are men. Some of the great painters were George Leykauf who was a famous artist along with Franz Bischoff and Franz Aulich.

Forget the cloths...paint...paint...paint

I do both in my retirement. I love to paint porcelain and watercolors, and I also love to quilt and sew and do many other needlework disciplines. But I think porcelain painting is my favorite.
