Teacup 32: 1980s Holyrood from Royal Albert 100 years set
I think I’ve only sketched this cup twice before. The last time was four years ago – see here.
For those of you doing the SketchingNow Edges Course Refresher at the moment… Can you see the edges describing changes in plane vs the changes in colour, my hard vs soft edges and also my lost and found edges? <
It’s so much fun to take risks with wet in wet when I sketch teacups. Achieving a similar result when I’m sketching buildings or urban scenes is much harder.
Teacup 31: T2 Monochrome Maze – Diamond
My two lockdown cups from April and May – the ones I have been using the most. A blue ‘Porto’ cup for my morning coffee and a geometric black and white cup for tea called Monochrome Maze: Diamond. Both from @t2tea
Both of these sketches were done really quickly while drinking my hot beverage. The black and white cup sketch was all about how loosely I could sketch it and watching what happens when I put a watery wash over white gouache!
Teacup 30: Ashdene Jardin Peony
A really quick morning sketch of a lovely teacup which was a gift from @theteacentre
I did this sketch while sipping The Tea Centre’s wonderful Miss Grey tea – tea which I bought to take to Italy with my this year.
