Continuing - #4 is to sketch a mug. This was HARD for me....symmetrical is hard, curves are hard, getting the pattern remotely curved was hard and largely unsuccessful I think. Who'd think drawing a simple mug would be so hard???
I added a little color this time then a touch of water to my Inktense pencils and that smudged...ah well. Now if you want to see how to REALLY draw a mug or teacup, visit Tracey Fletcher King - now she's the master of teacups!
As long as I had the sketching stuff out, I also tackled IA (Inspiration Avenue) challenge which is "damask". Now that's unusual! As an interior designer, I was really glad to see the damask pattern updated by scaling it so big that it became a statement pattern. The variety is infinite, the commonality is curvy, organic shapes. So, here's my doodley damask.
It's titled "An Exercise in Symmetry" - which I suck at, but this flowy curvaceous pattern was sure fun to make up! I'm also submitting it to the Sketchbook Challenge whose monthly theme for January is Doodles.

Thanks to Monica at Bohemian Twilight for the idea - she ends every post with some or all of these.... I think it's a good way to be in touch with your "present".
