Beans: EDMWC


This week's challenge for the Everyday Matters group is to draw your dinner. I never let mine sit uneaten long enough to draw it, so I finally decided to draw the green beans I'm planning on preparing for dinner tonight. Since it is a journal entry, I also wrote down my favorite way to cook green beans. Posted by Hello

Linda, I have been avoiding this challenge for that very reason - dinners are for eatin' not for drawin'! Thanks for the idea - now I I have no excuse.

Cheers

hee hee, i know what you mean about not being able to do the dinner challenge because the subject is much too distracting! good idea drawing the beans before they were cooked =) it made a pretty nice page with your notes, too.

This is nice! Great idea and I really like the way you 3D your sketch wiht the shadowing. I've got to work on that. Have you ever thought about doing a cookbook? I've only drawn a lowly pepperoni pizza, but I've thought alot about my wife and I getting out some of our favorite recipes and creating our cookbook. I think it would be fun.

I love the whole journal page. The drawing is great and I really like the way you have it boxed and the background colored. The recipe sounds great. If the deer will leave my green beans alone this summer (I can hope can't I?) I'll be sure to try it.

My thoughts exactly! That's really good idea. Beautiful work on your drawings.

Yum, sounds tasty! Good idea to draw the ingredients! I'm so far behind on the challenges I don't think I'll ever catch up. I so agree that meals are for eating rather than drawing... But every year I take photos of my Christmas dinner plate, so I guess I could cheat and work from a photo! Either that or it's assemble a nice plate of salad and draw that.

Hi Linda, thanks for dropping by. Actually I'm kinda fond of snails, there's something rather cute about them. Which is why we don't stomp on them, but just chuck them over our high wall into the allyway - they at least have a chance of survival that way. My Mum-in-Law has no such compuction, she splatters them! Slugs are different - eeeyughhh! We chop them in half with a trowel if we find them, but the nematodes do seem to have made a difference to the numbers we see.

Just stumbled upon your journal - I've enjoyed looking at your pencil and watercolour sketches. What lovely work!
