As the kettle started to boil I thought I would test myself to see if I could start to draw the coffee cup on the table and then finish sketching it after it had been moved and then put back in the same place. But as I began I realised that I had never been successful in drawing the delicate rim of a coffee cup but this time I was armed with a new technique. I lightly sketched the outline of the cup, hatched around the outside and inside the cup then took out the edges of the object with an eraser.
Drawing wood has never been my forte but taking advantage of my position as a teacher in a Thai temple school I sat down to sketch the ideal wooden object to overcome this.
As my Thai students copied the oral test questions off the white board I found the perfect opportunity to practise drawing the head of a Thai child. The boy kept lifting his head up and down to browse the board which just added to the challenge however I will be finishing this off another time as certain features such as balloon lips and the uniquely shaped heads of Thai people are not something that I can finish off from memory. I would like to recreate this drawing again on large paper using colour.
