Comfort

Of the familiar. I am catching up here with Everyday Matters drawing challenges. Above is #193, draw a small part of an everyday object as an extreme close-up. My pine cone close up is with graphite in my small hand.book journal. Graphite is a very familiar drawing tool for me. I really enjoy sketching and drawing with pencil. So simple and direct.
And here is challenge #194, draw a baked potato. Again, graphite in my small hand.book journal. I love baked potatoes, especially with sour cream and chives. And potato soup, fried potatoes, or mashed, all good. Hubby doesn't like potato soup. Kiddo only eats potatoes in two forms, fries and tater tots. So here's what I had on hand to draw for this challenge. They really don't even resemble food. We need to start eating better.

Lovely renderings! But I agree, it would be impossible to make a drawing of tater tots look like food, though you've come as close as anyone could.

Nothing like a drawing to put things into perspective eh? I didn't get choices growing up but my husband wouldn't eat like I did so both of our kids eat differently. Do we have too much?

But, your tater tots look like tater tots.

Make your own kind of tater tots? Probably be a lot healthier,

Tater Tots would count as "baked" potato. Might not be too bad with sour cream and cheese on them. Now you've made me hungry. Keep up the great drawings.
