Kitchen - ann hyde

This old onion storage pot is what I now use for my kitchen utensils.   I was going to keep it just as a pencil drawing



but then decided to add a splash of colour

  1. This is excellent. It's great to use the "old" things we have. Recycle so to speak. You brought to mind an old heavy bowl I have that's missing a handle on the side but It too can be recycled. Thanks. Great drawing.

    1. Thanks Sirkka, I didn't think too much about where I would put the paint, if I had, I would have lost spontaneity and painted 'very tight'.

    1. Thanks Lynn....I felt that too. Also, I wanted to show what the storage pot actually looked like. I wonder if folks in other countries have these?

  4. I like it both ways. Mine usually look better before the color since I am watercolor impaired, LOL.
