Teapot and Shoes - Sketches
I didn't finish the latte today. Have some more tweaking on the ellipse,of course. (Thanks Joanna for the advice!)
I sketched last night for the Scavenger Hunt and almost didn't post it, but this is the last day, so here it is.
I drew #10, teapot, which is a teapot that my mother had. It was old when I was little, must have belonged to her mother. It is a creamy color with orange touches and black or very dark blue around the center flower. It is sort of a tall shape, the sketch isn't too far off , really. Most teapots I have seen are more rounded and close to the table. I had previously sketched my Oriental teapot and the metal teapot used on the stove, so was surprised to find I had a third teapot as we don't drink much tea. For you that don't live in the southwest or southern part of the USA, we usually drink iced tea if we drink any. We make it in large quantities so a little teapot is just not practical. :) Many make sun tea, putting the bags in a big gallon or larger glass jar full of water and set it out in the sun until the right color. Then sweeten, or not, and serve over ice in large glasses. We drink it summer or winter, all year long.
#11,shoes, these are Gene's feet in some sort of beach shoes that he wears for every day shoes. They do look comfortable. :)
Both sketches are in my handmade sketchbook with a Micron 05 pen in burnt umber.
