    Tea pot and cup

    Do you want to improve on your drawing skills? Try out this exercise. This is a very simple yet difficult still life of a teapot and mug. Simple because of the basic shapes but oh so difficult to get both sides looking the same and to get the perspective correct! If you look carefully, you can see the flat background colour reflected in the teapot and mug. This not only makes it more exciting to paint but it also makes it instantly more three dimensional and goes to show that shadows are not necessarily grey. If you would like some feedback, send a picture of you work to info@studiojean.nl.
