Another collection of everyday things, old and new. The 'draw a grouping' and 'draw something you are grateful for' challenges continue to interest me. Packaging, and how it changes over time, is also fascinating so I combined all that into this drawing. I'm grateful for having a nice choice of creams now as compared to the seventies when I was growing up.
The glass pot on the left at the back used to be my favourite cream but that design is now a thing of the past so I wanted to capture it before I finally throw out the empty pot!
The drawing is quite small and I thought I'd make the lettering quite fuzzy but as I progressed it seemed to need defining. Together with all the eclipses, this was actually more difficult than I anticipated! I should have been brave, started larger and made things easier for myself!
