what to sketch

When I don't know what to sketch, I grab some produce from the fridge. Not a bad way to spend some quiet time with my paints, practicing color, light, texture and form. And then these items became part of our next day's dinner.

Very nicely done! I love the splatters in the foreground. You did a beautiful job with everything, and the arrangement is perfect with the three colors. I bet they tasted good too!

Dear Ann - this is a great thought. I chose to draw salt and pepper shakers yesterday (I was tired of flowers for the time being). Now I will try some veggies the next time. Thanks for the idea and sharing your lovely art. Bless you.
