Here is another food/cooking sketch from last night. I was waiting for some chips (french fries) to cook and thought I’d use the time to sketch. The hob is black, as are the gas rings so the whole drawing ended up pretty dark! The title comes from an old TV ad in the UK when some builders in the back of a van sung “we hope it’s chips, it’s chips!”…can’t even remember what they were selling but the song always comes to mind when I am cooking chips.
Yesterday I decided to draw my lunch before eating it. I think the pizza on the plate is clear – in the bowl is papaya. Comments are welcome! This is the last page of my current sketch book. Next I start on one I bought in Brighton.
Yes, more sketching at my daughters gymnastics classes – this one was done very quickly and I added some colour later.
Here is a quick sketch I did while visiting St. Lukes Hospital on Monday (accompanying my wife while she was getting a check up). In the upper waiting area the green light from the trees outside was incredible.
Yesterday we decided to have a day out and see some exhibitions, so we visited the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design and then Cultural Center of the Philippines. In between we found a nice spot for lunch overlooking a marina in Manila bay. Unfortunately we couldn’t find any local vegetarian food, so we had to make do with Starbucks.
Here is a sketch I did yesterday while we were at a local mall, where we had a quick coffee. My eye was attracted to this rack of T-shirts arranged in like a rainbow, in an otherwise dull setting.
Having had a go at my feet the other day, today I thought I’d try another difficult subject – hands. I don’t like to draw from photos so had to do this one handed. I am holding a flask of green tea…with sausage-like fingers!
