Bronze Jug and Kettle
I thought I'd do a couple of sketches of some bronze jugs and kettles
whilst I was watching TV. I picked up what I thought was my permanent
ink gel pen, only to find that after putting a wash on the kettle, it began to melt
away. Wrong pen. Rats. What a waste of energy!!
However, waste not want not, I doodled around and with some cutting and sticking, put it and it's source photocopy into my sketch book, and it least it had the useful effect, of making me fall in love with red and turquoise again!
Sharne's bits and bobs who is a reader of this blog. She found these Japanese patterned papers on the interweb.
Next time I have a need to do blossom, I shall remember the blue one; the shapes look easy to do and I like the way they're piled together. The centre marks would make a good stitching pattern too I think.
