EDM in EDiM 26 Draw a vegetable

May 26, 2010 | 3 Comments

Well, I had a delightful time doing this.

I LOVE drawing food of all kind and plain veggies are just as good as fruit in my opinion – both to draw and to eat (which I do all the time – except for tonight for some funny reason).

I sketched while listening to a beautiful piece of music Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings (I am going to a concert on Friday night and trying to get to know the pieces beforehand).

Somehow the combination of the exquisite background music and the fact that I have drawn my veggies on a pretty plate (actually looks prettier in my sketch than real life) has made me think I am drawing a ‘pretty’ object – but it is just some plain veggies. I am probably not making any sense!?! But what is new?

BTW, that is indeed a stalk of a broccoli bunch – no wastage in my house!

This is part of the Everyday in May challenge – drawing something every day
in May. A group of us thought it would be fun to do a Everyday Matters (EDM)
challenge each day using EDM 1-31. The list is here

    I think it is a beautiful plate indeed! What are the yellow things?

  • What a wonderful painting. Veggies are my favorite dinner. Nothing better than steamed broccoli. Barber's Adagio is one of my favorites. I remember first hearing it played at the funeral of Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco. That is a bit of trivia. You will love Barber's music. Again, you do such wonderful art work.

    I love pretty and I love dishes and I love food. I don't see a problem with this subject at all. Would it be redundant to say I love it? Your EDM's are great.
