Antique Copper Teapot with Cup 12 x 16 on panel

I bought this antique copper teapot a few months ago at a flea market and thought it would be fun to paint copper. Well its very hard and I may go back and work on the copper a little more. There are a lot of reflections so you have to cut down on the amount you put in the teapot or it will get too busy. I decided to add the design on the white cup so that it would be the main focus of the painting along with the orange slices. I decided to add leaves to fill in the space.
