Nefertiti’s Table

For today’s painting, I travelled all the way back to 1355BC  and managed to paint this quick watercolour of a mid-afternoon snack before Queen Neferneferuaten Nefertiti (I was in luck as she’d just popped to the shops with her consort Pharaoh Akhenaten) returned to eat it.

It was warm in that Ancient Egyptian Sun, I don’t mind telling you (almost as warm as it has been around here lately!), but things must be done in order to complete all of my paintings, if I can, for #WorldWatercolorMonth. This now makes 15 of 15, so I’m doing well.

I may stay in the 21st Century for my next painting, but I can’t seem to stay still for long!

Strawberries and Cream, Anyone?

It’s July. It’s World Watercolour Month once again.

And once again, I’m at it.

Very quickly, I must add, but still at it.

Today’s watercolour is meant to be Strawberries and Cream. I had the intention of making it abstract. Maybe I succeeded…

Visit Doodlewash (link below) to find more details about World Watercolour Month – and why not paint something up yourself? Have fun!

Wordle: Do(ugh)nuts

It’s a stormy debate
That doesn’t mar the taste
And the silence of a few letters doesn’t help
You still fry the batter
Which way – doesn’t matter
Whole or with a hole, please yourself
The star of the show
Is a sweet round of dough
A glorious gift filled with all manner of guilt
Draft a line in the sand
Decide where you stand
And then use your choice up to the hilt
Some use the ‘ugh’
Whereas others do not…
The charge being neither is wrong
Donut or doughnut
Just don’t eat a lot
You’ll feel wired and not very strong!

Tasty

Debbie’s One Word Sunday theme this week is ‘Tasty’, and I have some slightly-tweaked photos of some lovely sherbety bonbons…

The first one, is far from perfect, far from level, and far from round:

But, bonbons are bonbons, so it doesn’t matter.

The second photo is of the same three bonbons, but dramatically rearranged:

And the third photo is a combination of the lemon and strawberry bonbons:

Above, I was aiming for the fluffy, powdery feel. Below, I tried to make them more dark and gritty:

Dark and gritty, but still very tasty.
