So I made my aim come true... I did a pastel self-portrait. I am not too happy with it for a couple of reasons. 1. I didn't like the paper. Watercolour paper does not work well!! (At least not this cheap stuff I got). and 2. I messed up somewhere. I can't say for sure where, but something is a little- off about it. Other than that I learned a bit. Like it needs to be a lot bigger to get the detail in ;)
Sometimes surfing the web had be hazardous. I was looking for something the other day, when I ran across this delicious recipe for an Orange Cake. It was unique enough to catch my eye, simple enough to make me want to make it, and delicious looking enough to make my mouth water. I made a special trip to the store for the oranges ;)
And sat down and drew them immediately. I wanted to draw the process! So what I set to with the baking this morning, I drew the blender and the bowl too...
And what would life be without results? So I drew those too. My cake was not the prettiest due to sabotage. Yes, the kids had eaten a lot of my sugar, so I had to supplement with light brown sugar! Then the cake stuck a little to the pan. I probably should have waited and let it cool a little longer :/
Nevertheless, the taste is delicious. Very orangey, and so simple to make :)
