Girls Night in – Oct 19 ’16
Illustrated Recipes is always a popular night for the sketcher girls.
Most of them are excellent cooks and chefs so they know their food and what goes in it.
We did quite a few quick shortcut sketches of tricky ingredients on the board to find the simplest ways. It’s important to plan out your recipe well before beginning the real deal.
Each recipe was quite different and lots of laughs and discussions took place about how to layout the pages.
A few wines, some very tasty nibbles and all the recipes were coming together. Add some colour and a nice heading and there you have it.
Whew. Lots of thinking but very worthwhile. These can become gift cards or part of a collection of ones own illustrated recipes. Maybe even a little self published book. Food for thought indeed.
Next Girls night In and final for the year – Wednesday November 16 ’16. Greeting Cards.
