Two Demitasses 071

Since demitasse means half cup, do two demitasses make a whole?
These were a thrift store find and since it was half price day the total bill for two of them was 38 cents. I like the shape of them. They are white with a pale cream band at the top and some gold paint designs.
I like that they are silly and frilly in a way because of our world of super-sized everything, these dainty little bits become ridiculous.
The porcelain that they are made from is pretty thin and lets the light pass through it. In the previous drawing of the single demitasse I was working on capturing the shadow that the design on the outside was creating on the inside of the cup.
