A few weeks ago I started an Indesign file so I could keep track of how many and which teacups I have sketched as part of this mini project – sketching through my teacup collection. I was shocked to discover that yellow-green-blue cups have been dominating and that I hadn’t sketched a single pink cup.
Actually this is not such a shock as I’m not really into pink (the result of wearing a pink school uniform for six years of high school).
It’s another T2 cup and another cup which was bought as a prop for a workshop. This time a 2 day workshop in Melbourne way back in 2013. This is one of the most sketched cups in my collection. Its design and colours make it one of the easiest to sketch.
This sketch was done in a few minutes (the shadow wash was painted over a damp first pass) in a Hahnemuhle Nostalgie sketchbook. I’m really enjoying the super smooth paper in this book… and yes, I will do a full review of the book once I’ve finished it.
Now what colour cup should I sketch next… I still have about 20 to go!

And seriously, I would love some suggestions as to what colour cup I should next sketch! Please comment below.
