Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt was transparent. I drew a piece of lime floating in a glass of tonic water. It’s hard to draw when your felt pens are drying up. The transparency is difficult to define and delineate. The colours aren’t right, but give an idea of what it looked like.
My favourite drink. I painted this from memory because I don’t drink it very often. Gin and tonic and lime #30daysketchbookchallenge day 8.
Oh to be a happy pear,
Sitting on an old blue stair.
Or an apple with a smile,
Laughing and joking all the while.
What a jape
To be a grape.
And even when the sun don’t shine,
Have a drink with lots of lime.
Maybe even eat a lemon
And then again a small persimmon.
But never ever be an orange,
Cause there’s no rhyme to go with it!
A continuation of my theme on colours. Lime green seems to mean food to me. I have tried to write a poem about it. Its made me want a curry!
Lime is green, lime as jelly
Lime tastes nice inside my belly.
Lime with gin, lime and lemon,
Lime a sorbet, lime juice with salmon.
Lime is acid, sharp, zesty,
Lime is sweet and lime is tasty.
Lime the colour of new leaves,
Lime is shimmering, cool as a breeze.
Lime is good with chilli too….
Lime pickle burns my mouth anew.
