Quick Dinner Sketch

With the holidays in full swing, I have been hard pressed to find 20 minutes to sketch these days. But as this self-imposed 20 minute daily sketch challenge comes to an end for this year, I am determined to finish it up the way I began - sketching food! Drawing right in pen as our dinner was served, I had to be quick if I wanted to eat while the food was still hot. I love the spontaneous style of this, even though the colors of the food will have to be added in paint in a later session!

Christmas Treats

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We celebrated with family and food, and lots of wonderful treats and sweets. This slightly ambitious 20 minute painting is of a piece of Dutch almond roll, almond cake, and anise honey koek. All homemade and delicious, and only a sampling of the many varieties we had to enjoy. Watercolor, 5 1/2" x 8".
