Teacups and chooks watercolour

Wednesday has come and gone, and although I should have posted yesterday, technical difficulties got in the way.  Who knew camera batteries do indeed need recharging? I discovered this fact when trying to download the photos, so I could upload them, and write this post.  Needless to say I was having a  blond well honey blond,  o.k bottle blond, a senior moment until I figured out why nothing was happening.... so long story short no post yesterday even though I had this sketch all ready to go!

 Juicy watercolours? just spritz with water before starting...

 graphite free - pen sketch to start...

My favourite teacup is this Robert Gordon design, that has a shabby chic mix-up saucer and plate to match...we also had two mugs, but we used them so much they developed chips in the rim... one is now delegated to holding pencils in the studio - so I still get to look at its pretty design.

Would love to re-do this design on better paper, and take more time!

Just for Jennifer at Artist Playroom, where the Theme is..... Turkey Art!  We don't have a huge Turkey following here in Oz... more like a roast chook groove.  I do like my chickens though, and have had several goes at Chicken Raising ( not to be confused with barn raising, although very similar to Bairn* Raising!)

Happy Thanks giving to everyone, and here's a live Chook Sketch - I think she looks very thankful not to be on someones dinner plate! -  to celebrate your day of sharing!

A shout out to everyone visiting from  Whats on your workdesk Wednesday
and a wave to  Creative Every Day

  7. Well I'm visiting from two corners...both the WOYWW gang and the Artist Playroom so a double whammy! ;D
    The chicken is great. I think he's probably thinking 'thank goodness I'm not a turkey'!
    I love the tea cup but then I'm a tea addict. The flowers and colours look so delicate.
    I enjoyed my visit ~ thanks! :D

  8. Visiting from WOYWW. Camera problem is my sort of thing. But have to be known to forget to recharge the spare and not understand why that wont work either. Love the cup it is very pretty, as is the chook.
