Trois théières et un mug

No itches at all today... I'm free! It wasn't that terrible anyway, the medicine worked rather well.
Thanks a lot to everyone who cheered me up!
I have a hard time concentrating these days, must be the combination of vacation time and heat.
I've been trying to draw my teapots, and except for the Japanese one, which came out well, I think, nothing looks like I wanted it to look... I'm learning, I'm learning, but it can be frustrating at times...

Mixing the colors is so much fun I get side tracked... I wanted to paint the left side around the mug a very light orange, but I got this dark one and found it beautiful and forgot all about my first idea... Until it was done and I remembered why I wanted a light one... Bah, not very important!

This one below is a Moroccan teapot. The five little rectangles on the left are sugar blocks. The strange unidentified brown things in front of the green box are rolled leafs of green tea. That's called gunpowder tea and it's the one you use to make thé à la menthe, tea with mint. You put the tea directly down the teapot, with as many branches of mint as you can fit in it, and at least five to eight sugars blocks in a 1l teapot. That's not good for the diet at all. You pour boiling water and you serve very hot. It's delicious and good for the thirst!
