Lost edges to melt into the background. Using a palette knife for accent highlights.

More attempts on using the palette knife. Actually the finishing touches with a palette knife but I began this painting with brushes.

Apples in Line

Playing around with composition. I love the idea of objects off the page and the principle is to have three edges being touched. But I didn’t do it in this case. Does it work?

I had just signed for an online workshop, “Draw Like It’s Hot” in  Sketchbook Skool . It’s about drawing food. I welcomed this challenge to sketch food but also to record through drawings food that I used to prepare for a meal. In the final assignment we are to prepared a sketch of a recipe that would be posted on a food recipe website. Kinda like illustrating for a book.
