Tea(pot) for Two #1
coloured pencil & putty eraser/30x20cm
Another coloured pencil drawing, processed with direct reference to a recently-acquired object, a Japanese(-ish?)teapot of rather interesting form & a certain vintage colouration, displaying subtle modulations of both hue & tone, & what might be termed the initial 'ArtTeaOlogical' exploration.
Compositionally, the inspirational thought occurred that the circular 'arena' (an interpretation of the surface of a wooden chopping board) might make a suitable base upon which to present the object, rather than have it exist purely within the otherwise blank white space of the picture plane.
