Do I’ve any teacups that match my Zanzibar teapot?


In December I requested you to vote on which teapot I ought to use subsequent, and Zanzibar received! It’s a quite advanced sample with numerous totally different colors – see this earlier article for my detailed evaluation of the design.

I used the Zanzibar pot all all through January however I don’t actually have any teacups that completely match it! I attempted a number of totally different cups and got here up with three that I get pleasure from utilizing with it.

I solely have a number of single-coloured teacups and this one nearly matches the inexperienced within the teapot. So it was an okay pairing.

However truly, I feel {that a} plain (or flippantly patterned) lavender cup can be good. I did discover this lavender cup (from an Australian model that I simply found) which might match the invoice. A darkish blue cup would additionally work.

However by way of patterned cups… I solely actually have florals and complicated geometric designs in my assortment. None of my florals associated however I did discover two geometric patterns that created enjoyable and considerably loopy combos.

The sample that went one of the best with the Zanzibar teapot is my Watercolour Mark II cup. (The cup I purchased to rejoice the launch of my Watercolour course a number of years in the past broke so when T2 introduced out an up to date model of the sample final 12 months I purchased a substitute). It’s an excellent advanced sample so I wanted to do some evaluation…

The one option to sketch it loosely is to simplify and barely modify the sample.

And right here is the cup with the Zanzibar teapot. (Notice: after I sketch these two I can simply match the colors precisely however in actual life they’re slightly totally different)

The opposite cup that I get pleasure from utilizing with the Zanzibar teapot doesn’t actually go… however it picks up on the orange and inexperienced on the base of the pot. And for some purpose I really like the wild combo of patterns!

That is my Foundations Mark II cup (see right here for extra) and I significantly get pleasure from portray the sample of the saucer.

I’ve now moved onto the Silk Highway teapot which appears to go together with numerous my pink floral cups. So it’s lots simpler to match and the combos are a lot calmer! 🙂

Lastly – due to everybody who was a part of the enjoyable livestream yesterday. If you happen to missed it you may watch the replay right here. I’m considering of doing extra of a majority of these Stay Sketchbook Excursions if sufficient persons are . It’s a pleasant option to complement all of the week-by-week articles and reflections I publish right here on the weblog.
