I went to Jamie Oliver's for lunch today and ordered a cup of tea with my lunch. Look at the teapot it arrived in!
Is it sad to take photos of what you're eating and drinking?? I'm not sure, but it was such a lovely oriental cast iron teapot that I couldn't resist; it made fabulous tea as well and had one of those built in strainer things so you didn't get a mouthful of tea leaves.
I asked if they were available to buy and the waitress went and asked for me. She said that they weren't but were available from IKEA! Who'd have thought?
This is a preliminary sketch done in pen and ink of my still life from the other day. I haven't got around to doing much apart from this and the sketchbook page (below) but will do the Chinese Lanterns next I think.
