Tealidopscope Cups at the Cat Cafe: Daily Art Practice
I went shopping! I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was eyeing some teacups from T2. I was really bummed when I went to checkout and found that their shipping was really high, but once I did the calculation and currency conversion, I found that I only had to spend $80 USD to get free shipping. That wasn’t too hard as I wanted many things. Several of the Vintage Vibes cups I was looking at were only available for in-store pickup, so I had to pick different ones. The tealeidoscope cups are beautiful and I found both of them on sale! I love that this collection is Moroccan inspired. Now I can’t wait to paint them.
Which one is your favorite?
Daily Art Practice
I planned on sharing the last of my Tea Cup class but I realized too late that I forgot to photograph, so I am sharing a shopfront today. I still have 14 shopfronts left to complete in my shopfront sketchbook, which means I am squeezed for time if I am going to complete my goal before the end of the year. My building cannot be named since I don’t speak Japanese but I know that it is a cafe with a cat sign in Fukuoka City Japan, based off the reference photo. I liked the restaurant sign as it was reminiscent of the Art Nouveau period.
My favorite Micron pen died right before I started inking this building, so I used a larger mm than I like. Since the lines were thicker, I feel like it changed the look of the building. To me, it looks a bit more cartoony than usual. What do you think?
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My drink today is not tea, but French Vanilla Cappuccino, a delicious treat that I enjoy at the end of the day.
Happy Tea Day,
