November Drawing Project – Still life with ’Pots and Pans’, your breakfast table or tea time.

This drawing project is a still life project. Make a collection of a few shapes from the kitchen – pots and pans or crockery. Perhaps your coffee cup or wine glass as you enjoy drinking from it! Perhaps a setting for dinner or the tea table; perhaps a bowl of fruit; perhaps dishes on the draining board or stacked for washing up.
Keeping up the tradition of taking a walk down ‘memory lane’ with the first image of each Drawing project, here is ‘one I did earlier’, in fact when I was at school, probably for my O’ Levels homework. It’s a painting of our fruit bowl – a brass one from my granny. I now have it in my own home, although with no fruit in it to hide the glorious patina of the brass. Although I can see that I didn’t quite get the right silhouette, I remember being very proud of the reflection of the base and the way the colour changed around the curved surface. Not bad for a 15 year old even though I say it myself!

I would be delighted to get your comments about the project on my blog and to add your blog to my list below, especially if you have posted some of your drawings.
Special news in December about another Drawing Project so keep watching. Happy drawing!


  1. Some super ideas to get our teeth into here, Sian, thank you! I particularly like the possibilities in exercise II .. just hope I can find some time to have a go!
