"Sketchbook with Coffee on the Edge"
A friend suggested coffee mugs, so I've been messin' about with them for a while.
Of the approximately 7 or 8 I've done, 2 or 3 sold back when I had an active eBay Store, and since maybe only one of them do I find interesting.
That one is this one. I like the "graphic" look, totally accidental as it is was/is.
The black area began as a wall with a window and from that window flowed the light that created the shadow this side of the mug. When I blackened it in, because I didn't like the "look" of it, I pulled the black paint right over the edge of the table as I focused in on the shadow line; so there's the "big oops" with this one.
But I still like it so off it goes to the blog.
