Catching up with May’s fine daily dining

foodinmay02Interesting exercise on Sunday – how to show a large bowl of popcorn without drawing every kernal. Again this is my Fabriano sketchbook with gouache and assorted markers and/or pencils for the initial sketch.

Then there was Monday – I do enjoy the contrived geometric arrangements – and tasty little Special K crackers. These sketches do show my fondness for a little red wine – for medicinal purposes of course.


In some Internet sketching circles , drawing everyday in May – if not all the time – is a popular challenge.

For me, I’ve been drawing every day, and I do mean every day, at least 3 times a day, since mid-July 2008, so my challenge will be to post them. This blog has been more of a personal semi-private record of my oil painting than daily drawings shared with the rest of the world. So this is an anomaly, that should work well this month. Later on in May, I will be vacationing – the food will include airline meals – what can we expect from Swiss Air? I understand Chocolate is included, with goodies from Basel, Budapest and Vienna to follow. I won’t guarantee daily postings but the food offerings will be a bit different from the customary  campus/packed lunch food selections. I’m using gouache, a pen or pencil and a Fabriano sketchbook that is approximately 6×9 inches. This was what I ate on May first.


Lots of Gouache Food

The food diary continues, with lots of chocolate cupcakes last night. Thanks Eddy!

What’s on the nightstand?
