234. Scaredycat Owl Mug

Various Pilot G-tec C4 pens, Staedtler 0.05 fine liner and
Unipin 0.5 pen (plus Tombow brush pen) in
Stillman & Birn Epsilon sketchbook, 8.5"x5.5"

Mug sketching with my friend Rachel; she has the loveliest mugs! The owls on the actual mug don't look anywhere near as scared as this one; oh dear!  I learned something though: there was more intricate decoration underneath each owl but the design was finished in a very limited colour palette and narrow tonal values which totally calmed down the busy-ness of the design - very clever!


  1. very pretty :) you did a great job with the design :)

  2. Lovely detail on the mug, I couldn't think of a better pastime!!
