Stacked tea cups

A friend asked me to make her teacups :)  So that is what I did yesterday.

She sent me some images of tea cups and tea pots she likes and this was the first one

So I drew it with pencil, which is something I don’t often do, but should definitely do more often! And then I colored it with acrylics and paintbrushes.
I gave it some touches with wooden coloring pencils over the acrylic.

And drew some leaves and started cutting
I was amazed at how much faster it was to cut the leaves out just because I had actually traced them first.
I think I’ll be using a pencil on regular basis from now on! :)

    ¡Hola Alice! :)
    Disculpa que no contestara antes, no podía entrar a mi blog! o.O
    Por acá finalmente de vacaciones, espero poder hacer muchas más tacitas y teteras pronto. Hace un calor tremendo y es un poco incómodo trabajar así.
    Muchas gracias por tu comentario, los aprecio mucho :* <3
