Tonights #bandofsketchers prompt was between. OK, my choice was between Cadburys Creme Egg cake and a nice hot cross bun…. Er, yes….. Both? I used a little Watercolour box I found on top of the microwave. It’s several years old and only has ten half pans of paint with a tiny brush. But it’s good quality paint.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. I couldn’t think of anything, until I thought ‘school of fish’, I found this example of a plate with a school of fish from John Lewis so tried to do a watercolour of it x
Tea, (early evening meal). Cornish pasty. Mixed salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, sliced mushroom, baby bell peppers and a bit of dijon mustard and light mayonnaise. On a Portmeirion dinner plate. I think it was a good balance of food groups. Trying to cut down on carbohydrates and fats a bit. Colour on a plate.
Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. It was meant to be a plate of food but I’d eaten it before I remembered! The depicts a Magnolia plant with butterflies on the plate made at Portmeirion pottery. I drew it using a black drawing pencil on cartridge paper in my little sketchbook. We had a salad and quiche. With whole grain mustard. Tasty.
Home made coleslaw (cabbage, carrot, red onion) with reduced calorie mayonnaise. A small piece of brown seeded bread with a bit of pate, a couple of chopped up tomatoes, half an avocado pear and some de-stoned red cherries. Also a few cheese and onion potato crisps. On a Portmeirion plate. Why? Because I liked the colours mainly. I watched a programme about still life last night and the interest that images of food created was fascinating. At one stage still life was seen as the lowest form of art, but the innovations of artists gradually made it more accessible and acceptable. Artists like Paul Cezanne and Pablo Picasso bought new definitions of what still life meant. Art is fascinating. It’s funny the ideas you can get by staring at a plate of food. X
