I like the color temperature in this one - and the checkered cloth under the curved pot/cup. Nice!

Belinda, Those are some keen observations; now that you mentioned it, I will become more aware in future about it; Thanks! JLC

What a super painting..tonal perfection!...I love the gold rim on the cup and the subtle values on the teapot.

This is lovely -- your handling of the tea pot reflections is superb! Love the painterly style too. Definitely one of my favorites.
