Tea(pot) for Two #6
coloured pencil & putty eraser/30x20cm
Presenting the sixth in the summer’s series of teapot drawings, the objects observed from life & pictorially composed within/around the formal device of a circular arena.
The subject in this particular instance is the pairing of a pea green Japanese bamboo-handled teapot & an accompanying mug, attempting to communicate, via the ‘exploratory’ medium of coloured pencils, a sense of solidity of form &, more elusively perhaps, something of the nature of the objects’ surface glaze, as a natural light source plays across them & highlights & reflections occur.
