100th Post - Mint Tea

Welcome to my 100th post, I have been blogging for a while now, maybe two years and it has really helped with my creativity and regularity of drawing. If I don't draw every day it will be every other day. This first photo is of the summer in England, in the park making daisy chains with my little cute cousins- it was so lovely and warm with very long days - the sun rose at just after 3am and it didn't get dark until gone 10pm. My days were filled with laughing with family and drawing.


Above are a few antique cups that I illustrated on - they are part of a larger set of saucers and plates that will be exhibited in a newly opened cafe in England. Below is a lady pouring mint tea - she is inspired by my backpacking holiday to Morocco in my first year of uni. Ms Mint Tea is quite large in real life (A3), she adorns a cafe/bar in England - she is part of a series of Moroccan inspired ladies- I will be posting the rest of her friends in the near future.
