080708 So Far this week....

More food diary pages....
asked me about my technique so I will add it here as well

I have the advantage of being left handed with a brush and pen but use my fork in the right hand. So....
I normally draw quick outline, and then if I need to cut my food up I do this next (I eat a lot of stir fries with bite size food so this helps), then I start to eat from the back side of the plate so I can finish the outlines. Then, if there is no need for me to leading the conversation during the meal, I often start painting while I am still eating (using a waterbrush) - otherwise I do the colour from memory when I am finished my meal (but still sitting at the table)
I am developing my technique all the time.
And then more food - this time for a EDM challenge.
Two versions of an onion ... both were out of control though in different time frames- the first one took about an hour (waiting for washes to dry) and the second one 10minutes - and living with any consequences.


  1. I love how you did these with the block of color behind them, very creative! All your pics are wonderful! Marva

  2. OH YEAH! LOvin' THIS! LUsh, flowing wonder.

  3. I like both of your onions! Very nicely done :)
