A couple Fridays ago, I spent an afternoon hanging out at a coffee shop. I enjoyed a vanilla latte and some quiet brainstorming time.
It was such a great moment that I wanted to capture it in my sketchbook.
In addition to playing around in my sketchbook with watercolor illustrations, I’ve been making time for graphite drawings in another sketchbook. This week, I’ve been obsessed with drawing coffee mugs/lattes.
Here was my photo inspiration:
When I first learned how to draw, I thought coffee mugs were hard to draw because they are a symmetrical shape, which takes practice to get both sides sloped and curved the same. I’m feeling much better about drawing coffee mugs in all sorts of shapes now, so it’s become a fun challenge.
