10. How to print Reference Material?
If you do not have A4, use Legal size 8.5″ by 14″.
- First of all you will need to trace over the Teatime Table image using a pencil.
You will notice there are two templates, you might prefer to draw a simpler scene or you might like to spend more time and create a more involved scene, just print out your preferred image and trace/draw firmly over the lines on the printed side.
Position the page onto your sketchbook spread – drawn side down (make sure it’s the right way round). Then, firmly scribble over the reverse of the image to transfer the pencil markings onto your page.
You will now have a lovely Teatime line drawing, all ready for some colour!
- You might want to start drawing and painting the cups and plates before adding any biscuits or cakes.
Using the reference, start to add embellishments, colour and decorations, in as detailed or as simple a fashion as you wish.
- You will now have a lovely table setting, just ready for the best bit – the food!
It might be a good idea to start with one of the simpler biscuits, for example, a brown paper shape with the detail added of either a Custard Cream or a Rich Tea. Don’t forget, it’s really affective to add another dimension, either with a darker or lighter pencil, making the letting, patterns or dots really come to life.
- Using some of the methods shown in the video, try to add as many biscuits or cakes as you can, making it a really varied and colourful spread, with generous helpings too!
This is one of those spreads that you might like to keep adding to, you can’t really go wrong, the more detail and more fun you have with it, the better it will look!
Have a lovely Tea! xxx
