TOM’S New Food Sketches

I did these sketches using only colored pencils………no watercolors.

I buy my “still-life at the Whole Foods Market.  I draw it…..then I cook it.

Then I eat it.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RED CABBAGE…….my recipe

TOMS RECIPE for shredded RED cabbage 


Cut a head of RED CABBAGE in half.

I did a watercolor before I cooked it.

Slice it very thinly………..

Dice it………

Bring to a boil in 1/2 c water……..with S and P and one teaspoon caraway seeds.  Douce with 2 tbs of red wine vinegar. Add a bay leaf and 2 cloves of garlic. Reduce to a simmer for 25 mins.


Saute your favorite sausage.


Serve with a cold beer.  ENJOY.

 

FIGS from my TERRACE GARDEN

Every summer I grow FIGS on my terrace………

Today I picked 6 of my FIGS.

Then I arranged the FIGS in a dotty dish………

 

This was my sketch for the FIG layout.

Final sketch with a ball-point pen……..6 FIGS

Chose my color pallet for the FIGS.….31 colors in all……..


This is the final watercolor of my FIGS.

Then I pickled the FIGS.………..and will eat them tomorrow with a pork roast.

[My mother taught me how to pickle fruit when I was 10 years old].
