I’m really behind in my posting but this event is so old that it’s starting to show up in the history books. Way back when, about a week and a half ago, Hubert Langevin invited us to sketch at his house. As a big storm was predicted and we got to watch the snow going sideways through the large windows of his house as we drew objects Hubert had placed around for that purpose. There were seven of us and we spent the day sketching, laughing and eating marvelous vegetable soup and fresh bread. Lisette brought date bars for dessert.
I started sketching this smallish (15-20cm) clay woman. She was so cute, even though she lacked a face. Then I watched the snow fall, talked with everyone too much (I must drive them crazy) and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
Then I sat down to draw a set of teacups set out as a still life. We broke for lunch and then, with belly full, I returned to sketching tea cups, spoons and napkins. My intent was to simply do a shaded contour drawing but somehow I got dragged down the rabbit hole of drawing all the decorations on the cups. This was a lot of fun and not nearly as hard as one would suppose. I hope you like it. Thanks to Hubert for hosting us.
