A Wonky Stripey Teapot

3 Oct


It’s day 2 of the 40 Day Drawing Challenge set by Green Olive Press in Morocco and I’m taking the opportunity to draw still life. It isn’t my strongest point so I’m using the Challenge to get in some practice. I’m starting off with one object at a time so that hopefully by the end, I will be able to do a composition of several items.  I love tea so a teapot is an obvious choice. It’s a bit wonky, but that’s okay, I’m practising. Today I used my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet with a basic free app called Markers. If you’re thinking of trying it out, you’ll need to put in a basic coloured ground before you start drawing, even if it’s white, otherwise it looks weird when you upload the final drawing.

I saved the drawing several times as I went along and the slides show the different stages of the drawing.

I’m A Little Teapot….

13 Aug

….short and stout. ….and a bit wonky!


Today’s sketch is practice. People, animals and cityscapes are my comfort zone but practice should take me out of that so I am going to do some simple still life studies. I don’t like it. There’s not much wriggle room in drawing objects. Never mind. I drew this with Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens, sizes S,F and B into my tiny A6 spotty sketchbook.

On The Hoof With A Teapot.

23 Jun


Husb and I went for a walk on the beach this evening and I did some sketching on the hoof. It results in wobbly drawings! I used my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 with a free Markers app while I followed people. They suspected nothing.


The sun was setting behind us as we looked out to sea and cast these shadows of us on the sand; me taking the photo and Husb being a teapot.


The beach was reflected in the windows of the civic centre. It’s lush.
