A food-related post seems required today. After I drew the propped skillet, I added a background.
Have you ever made bananas Foster? This is a simplified, similar dessert:
Melt butter in a skillet. Put in bananas (cut lengthwise) and apple slices. Drizzle honey over the fruit. Brown on both sides. Remove fruit and continue to simmer honey/butter until it reaches a caramel level you like. Pour over fruit.
Sometimes I add low-salt peanuts, too. Great when served with ice cream!

This is the leftover paint from my last oil painting. It's on a "stay wet" paper that I left in the box for weeks. Even oils couldn't stay wet that long.
I enlarged one section to enjoy the texture. As you can tell, I didn't put the paint down in any sort of organized way.

It's interesting that the w/c paper is thicker, but the pencil comes forward more in the scanned image.

I always notice something, whether it's how difficult this hard charcoal pencil is to erase, or something new about how finger skin wrinkles.
Hard charcoal pencil on 70# paper. It got these pencils at Barnes & Noble, cheap and about 20 to the box. They are great to work with!

A thick spiral pad much larger than the scanner never works.

And I don't even own a pair of white socks, so the horror of socks in sandals does not apply (I claim). These sandals are actually black leather, I just didn't color them in.
