A Favourite Teapot
A view looking down on my favourite teapot for Everyday matters 290.
I drew an old silver teapot a few weeks ago, so just to change perspective I thought I would do this one from above. I have a small collection of old teapots, sugar bowls etc, I don't mind if they're a little worn and they definately don't match, although there does seem to be a general theme of roses !
While I was drawing the teapot I was listening to a radio programme about people's experiences in the Blitz, personal accounts and diaries of bravery and sadness, now when I look at this drawing I think of those people. Often I find that a drawing or painting soaks up thoughts and feelings, or a sketch brings back sounds and smells. Does this happen to you too?
