Two Jugs And A Sugar Bowl

18 Feb

Does what it says on the tin, really. Didn’t have anything interesting to draw today as I spent most of it down at the Print Workshop, printing up a block print and a drypoint and I forgot to take photos of what I did to blog. So I grabbed these and stuck them on a blanket on my pouffe [had to push Ming the Merciless off first. She went off in a huff]. Quickly sketched them because I’m trying hard to draw everyday, no matter what other artwork I’m doing. It’s not easy. Those wobbly ellipses and the foreshortening – oooof! Especially the little fat jug at the back. People are so much easier to draw. Maybe I should force myself to do some still lives for practice – or penance lol 🙂


Better go and apologise to Ming the Merciless now. Cats have ways of getting revenge!

    Your sketches are very natural and casual, the hashes and shades are fun to watch!
    I like the stars on the jugs and bowl.

      Thank you 🙂 They’re fun to do and quite relaxing at the end of the day because they’re for me, not for exhibitions or anything important 🙂

    I’ve really been enjoying the series of sketches you’ve been posting lately. Makes me feel good that I’m not the only ones posting quick ‘sketchy’ stuff.

      Thanks Hansi. I think it’s an important part of professional practice to sketch and to let the public know what we do to keep improving our skills. I think of speed sketching as our equivalent of a musician practising their scales. A lot of people seem to think that our ability comes from out of nowhere, and don’t appreciate the amount of time and work we put in to honing our abilities.

    I like these, I like wibbly wobbly. Before I saw the sketch I did wonder if “Two jugs and a sugar bowl” was going to be an analogy for something 😉
