A Few Sketchbook Studies: Daily Art Practice
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity from my son’s daily football practice and games to my husband and I taking out annual getaway for our anniversary. Again, I haven’t had a lot of time to paint but I am thankful for the little periods of time here and there that I can be creative.
I have been continuing to make my fermented food since I can’t do without. Here is a look at my Kimchi before it goes into the jar for a 4-day ferment. It contains napa cabbage, scallions, onions, apples and a delicious paste seasoned with Korean chili flakes. I seriously could eat this by the jar because it tastes SO good but my belly wouldn’t like that, so I restrict myself to half a cup a day.
What is your favorite fermented food?
Daily Art Practice: Sketchbook Studies
One study that I did recently was a figure study of people in motion. I was inspired after taking an Etchr class, focusing on creating travel journal layouts. You can see my travel layout from the class HERE. I used a few photos that I pinned from Pinterest.
For this first photo, I was drawn to the various dishes that the lady is serving, along with her colorful garb.
I loved the blue garb that this man is wearing but of course it was the tea that he is pouring that drew me most.
Here are a few more sketches I did from a study of pantry items. I used colored ball-point pens for this study.
I am joining the tea day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Nspire Organic Tea Silver and Spice. I love drinking this in the afternoons while I am painting. It has just the right amount of spice, while still being light.
Happy Tea Day,
