Wow, great! I wish I had a tea strainer like that! Is it made of wood?Your drawings are absolutely stunning. I also like the shadow in the first one a lot!
Now that is a tea strainer! Two lovely delicate drawings of a beautiful object. Is the top one watercolour over pencil? How do you do this without is looking a little grubby? That's what happens whenever I try it, anyway!
Wonderful drawing. Your shading really gives it volume!
Your sketches are so beautiful, and detailed. I love everything in bamboo and would love that tea strainer and the broom.
I love seeing things from other countries like this strainer. Your drawings are just wonderful! nancy
What an interesting object. You must have a lot of patience to draw the shadow so carefully on the colour pic. Love them both.
Both drawings are fantastic. I too, am curious about the technique used on the top piece.
Wow! great drawings. I've never seen one of these!
Not only are your sketches fabulous--really, really fabulous--but you also come up with the most unusual objects, most of which I have never seen! I'm loving it!
Beautifully done! I love all the details.
This is gorgeous, your drawings are detailed, yet simple. Very inspiring!
Amazing, I just love all the detail. I also wish I had a tea strainer like this.
Amazing, I love all the details in your work.
it's gorgeous!!! I have never seen tea strainers like that but I am sure they work really well, and they definitely look really sturdy too.:) Beautiful lines and colors, I can't get over admiring the details. Another realistic masterpiece!
Another beautiful study, your technique is so delicate, just lovely. This must have taken ages to do!
What beautiful sketches - I am guessing that this tea strainer is made from bamboo. What a lovely object.
Thanks for you kind comments about the tea strainer.Sadly, it's not mine but was brought back from Bhutan by a friend.It is bamboo and was quite large, about 140cm in diameter. They must have really big cups out there.I painted the top one with acrylic, as I was using the paint at the time.(and Sarah..it did start to look grubby but I added some acrylic mixed with a glaze medium, which brightened it-then decided to stop)To be honest, it was easier (and quicker) to paint than a straight forward drawing.Wish I could have kept it for longer to do an inside view....
This is beautifully drawn! And what an interesting item. You really do have an eclectic collection of things. Glad I found your blog.
Thanks for your comments everyone!
