I’ve been using my dark green teapot for the last few months and working out which teacups from my extensive collection go with it. I didn’t expect to find so many matches – 26 in fact! But it’s now time to move on to another teapot.
My favourite combo with the green pot was with my Old Country Roses cup. So today I did this sketch to celebrate the end of this first phase of my teapot project.
Here is a single image showing all the cups I paired with my green teapot.
And here are the recent sketches from my Royal Albert 100 years set which complete this collection of 26 teacups.
1980s Holyrood – using some pastel pink and blue marker colours below my watercolour washes.
1920’s Spring Meadow – this cup didn’t actually really go with the dark green teapot but as I had gotten it out of the box I decided to use it anyway. So the greens in this sketch are a bit darker than they are in real life.
So what teapot will I choose next?
I want to switch from using a plain teapot that goes with lots of different teacups to one with a complex pattern that will only go with a few cups.
This will give me a chance to work out how to sketch the patterns of the teapots and also to have fun creating some totally eclectic mixing. 🙂
I have three teapots from the brand Tea & C’s that have very complex patterns:
A. Tea & C’s Silk Road Teapot – Colour Aqua (5oomL)
B. Tea & C’s Kasbah Teapot – Colour Rose (5oomL)
C. Tea & C’s Zanzibar Teapot (5oomL)
I would love to get some help in deciding which one to choose.
So if you have a spare moment, could you let me know in the comment section below your choice – A, B or C. This will also let me know that people are still reading and interested in my blogposts 🙂
