F (A-Z-2018)

Still Life with a Twist ‘F’

Friday’s image for the letter ‘F’ is from my fankfully FOUND old mobile phone camera and  very low resolution so not screenshotting it. I’ll be having to use it again as I was out photographing skies on Tuesday in what must have been solar FLARES and should have put my camera into its’ protective case before re-entering the house. It FLICKERED as I crossed the stairway and I nearly had a FALL feeling very unwell with it at the time. By the by. I should have known better as I read Scott Nicholson’s book ‘First Light’ a couple of years ago.

While taking my time with making FROTTAGE to frow at some subject matter I decided to fling up an old still life sketch, rough, of course. I drew this in January 2013 having prepared some dinner with FRESH ingredients.

quick pencil drawing of a circular wooden chopping board with carrot peel and emptied garlic bulb skin across the centre of the board. A peeling knife and a vegetable knife lay diagonally across the top right of the picture, their handles extending beyond the picture space. The page is held to a clipboard so the bulldog clip is a dark narrow rectangle at the top of the page.

I’ll have to take a better photo really and/or get around the surreal version I was going to make from my ‘visual research’ drawing(s).

FOUND objects haven’t made it into this post, unusually (- other than my previous old mobile phone, but not the lost one I’ve FAILED to FIND yet!) But tomorrow’s FINDERS-keepers post covers that genre quite enough…



~~Following the first commenter’s suggestion that my temp post was enough I’m leaving it as was for the record now I’ve updated and FINALISED my ‘F’-post…>


Still Life with a Twist ‘F’

My post will be here soon (delayed by full virus scanning, just getting dinner. Apols!)


Toward ‘Food for Thought Tuesday’?…

…and trying a gallery post with some of my images…

Wow! how quick and easy is that! There’s only a few more days of #DrawingAugust left… I’m wondering if I can keep up with some small drawing every day into the beyond. (My theme is ‘the every day’ and I hope to discover that portfolio posts are easy to make as a gallery post! But that’ll be elsewhere…)

Away then to draft my foodie post proper, upon request… “…costed and nutrionally valued, photographed, on your own blog for a reblog till the tech issue irons out…” (What a tough taskmaster!) …

Nutritional value = full stomach & vitamin enriched bread (kept in fridge since purchase, use by date 14th August, still ok to eat) didn’t use full range of potential ingredients pictured…

cost = for one person using half a pack noodles, half tins of soup, peas and mushrooms, with two slices bread to make as filling as a dinner, approx 85p including cooking in electric mini-oven 10-15mins with supermarket value range foods; if buying those food items from nearest small shop = approx. £1.70

Sorry Stu, there’s art in your foodie-post – but it is my blog!!!
