Everyday in May
Well, I did it! I signed myself up for a drawing challenge on the Everyday Matters group. The aim is to draw or paint something everyday in May. Hence the name of the challenge ;)
My trusty technical pencil, my tiny sketchbook and I sat down early this morning to draw. I chose a small creamer or pitcher that I think once belonged to my husband's grandmother. It is a lovely aging yellowy colour, but I don't have the paints to do it justice. I will remedy that soon ;) It is a lovely and unusual scalloped shape, which prooved to be very difficult to render accurately. I think it would have been much better in colour!
I decided to make a loose theme for the challenge of: "things I see" because that covers pretty much anything I want to draw ;)
ETA: Apparently the creamer was not from my husband's grandmother, but was picked up by my mother-in-law because it matched a large pitcher that comes from my Husband's grandmother. Yes, the pitcher is also scalloped :)
