I made most of the sketches over the last few weeks at home, since I was stuck at home with bronchitis. The one on the right was made after a doctor's appointment, though.
I've had so much hot tea over the last few weeks! I'm a total convert to herbal tea and especially lemon and ginger tea. In the sketch above I made myself two cups, one with a lid to keep it hot.
The Nickel Boys is a good book - very clearly and concisely written and still very affecting.
More things around the house, more hot tea. I drew small boxes in anticipation of small/quick sketches. That blue cup is the one with the lid from the sketch above. An artist gave it to me as a gift, probably 20 years ago, after I helped her with a show of her work.
The sketch on the right was the view out of my window one day when the sun came out after days of rain and made everything look like it was glowing yellow. But the sky behind it was purple, indicating more rain to come.
I surprised myself by doing this two-page spread of my tea setup. The small dish is for the tea bag - I find that if I leave the tea in the kitchen to steep it just stays there. And I happened to have this small tray that is the perfect size for this.
Usually I sketch when I'm out, but I enjoyed capturing these little moments. Do you sketch more in your house or outside of it?
