Sketchbook #5: Sugar Jar

A new klass has started at Sketchbook Skool so I’m underway with the homeworks from this semester on ‘Storytelling’. In the meantime though, I’m just finishing off a few pages in my Moleskine sketchbook.

This one had been waiting for some colour to be added for quite  a long time. It’s just the kilner jar that we keep the sugar in and a tiny Bonne Maman jar at the side.

I was planning on outlining it in black ink before colouring it in but eventually decided to keep it a bit softer and leave it as a pencil sketch. I think that was the right decision.

    I think you’re absolutely right… I like the softness (says she who can barely draw a stickman…)

      I bet he’s a very nice stickman though!

        Well… I dunno about that one! You know what’s funny? Can’t draw for beans but when it comes to doing cakes, I somehow am pretty good with icing! You can check out my cakes, cakes, cakes photos on FB! 😉

    Always a dilemma of mine…pencil or ink? This sketch looks great!

      Thanks Cathy. I often just jump straight in with pen but with this one it was a tricky decision.
