This is the first ceramic plate painting I tried. Davis Art Center was offering a summer weekend plate painting class and the test plate showing the available glazes suggested to me that my Godiva drawing could translate well to this medium. Actually I was dissatisfied with the first effort, did some overglazing to improve it , and at this point it's not too bad for a first effort. It's hard to get good skin tones with these glazes and it's hard to get really good fine detail.
For the original sketch and colored drawing see Godiva Rides , sketch and color versions of Godiva galloping her stallion, accompanied by her Basenji.
