Italian Salt and Pepper Shakers


I fell in love with these salt and pepper shakers because they reminded me of Italy. I sketched them quickly tonight in ink to test my new Cotman watercolors. (and yes, I still have a problem getting two shakers to have the same shape! LOL) Already I can tell these pan watercolors are SO much brighter and richer than any I've owned before. Now to get used to mixing them!

Oh, these are sweet! The difference in their shapes adds to the charm. Maybe you will do these in colored pencil too?
