Day 2 of Art Prompts

Today I continued with the class mentioned the other day , and tackled the second prompt on the list: "drink". Decided to draw my usual morning brew, which is black tea. This time I used my favourite mug, which is a ceramic travel mug from T Bar, that I use without the safety lid, since I'm not traveling anywhere, so there is no danger of spilling anything. :)  The first is a sketch of my mug as seen from above. Here's a couple of process pics: Then I started sketching the mug as seen from the front. More process pics below: Next is the paper bag that my tea came in, which is actually drawn in real size (the other sketches are not). Of course, my cat decided to come and join me at some point and I didn't have the heart to move her away to take the pics. :) I started sketching my coconut milk also, but haven't finished it yet. I had to take a break at some point (I was tired and my eyes were stinging) and actually took a nap with the cat. :) I might finish it t


Well... I did it again! I joined another online class, lol. :-D :-)

Anyway, this one is about working with the Lenormand cards for fortune telling and divination (boy, doesn't that sound weird). I am very curious though, because I kept hearing about them time and time again in this online world of card reading and card readers (Tarot, Oracle cards etc), but never tried them before. So I am basically jumping into this class as a total newbie. I don't even have the cards in question! (Yet. More about it below.)

This type of cards seem to be, out of all of the methods mentioned above, closest to the classic view of card reading for divination or fortune telling. At least to me. When you say cartomancy/fortune telling, the image forming in front of my eyes is that of a lady (possibly a gypsy woman) reading cards (Lenormand or plain playing cards). Of course, that is just what I imagine, doesn't mean it's the same for everyone else or that it should be. :)

Anyway, as I said, I'm a complete newbie at this too, and I didn't even have the cards in question when I joined this course! I still don't, but at least I've placed an order for a set online and I should get it next week, before the beginning of the class. It's a Piatnik set of Lenormand cards. And while I was browsing the seller's offer, I found another one, a set of gypsy fortune telling cards from the same company (Piatnik), so I've added this one to my shopping cart also. I'm very curious about these too. And I should be able to get my hands on them on Wednesday next week at the latest. :)

P.S. The links (and the photos) above are from the Piatnik company website. But I bought mine from a Romanian online seller (here and here, in case you might be interested). Also, the class I am talking about is this one (also in Romanian). Actually, this is the very first edition of this class, but I know the school (took some astrology and numerology classes with them some time ago and they're good).

Can't wait for it to start! And for my new cards to arrive! :)

I'll be back. :-D
