Conservatory Sketch

I had every intention of  painting  after I came back from our local charity shop to look for some more vintage teacups. There were some beautiful sets, but all I needed was teacups and saucers. I did choose a set of four cups that are modern but really pretty designs . I brought them home and after sorting out dinner I thought it would be a good idea to give them a wash. My mum taught me this great method that really gets rid of every bit of stain on crockery. In a large pot add Daz handwash powder and boiling water and soak the dishes that need washing for about twenty minutes and then a light scrub with a scouring sponge and they come up new and squeaky clean. So, I washed the cups and then thought I would wash all the cutlery since there was plenty of the soapy water left. After that I started on all the dinner plates we use and before I knew it I had spent the entire evening cleaning and ended up with sparkling crockery and cutlery, but no time to paint!!.
Just this little sketch.

  1. Haha, that session should see you through the rest of the year! Love the light airy touch in your sketch. Thanks for the Daz tip! A great way to clean a stained teapot is to fill it with hot water and drop one of those fizzy denture cleaning tablets into it and leave to soak. Same with mugs etc. Art and household tips, it's all here.
