Teacup Sketching

Pink teacups Liz Steel
It’s no understatement to say that I’m a little obsessed with drinking good quality loose leaf tea out of fine china teacups… and sketching the experience.
I have an ever expanding collection and every time I sketch a particular cup I described it differently.

Teacups are my muse… the subject I use to explore new ideas or simply just to chill out and get lost in the moment. I particularly like exploring wet in wet watercolour techniques and lost and found edges when I’m sketching teacups
