Sketchbook Sunday with Sushi!

Hi friends! Today I have the first of several quarantine still lifes. I have been enjoying setting up stil-lifes with item I have around the house to draw and paint from. When life slows down you can pause and observe the ordinary. Also we have lost power/internet due to a snowstorm this week and are expecting to lose it again tomorrow with high winds expected so we have to be resourceful with what we have on hand. I think that’s one thing this quarantine is teaching everyone. It’s not all a bad thing.

I took that photo the other day after my daughter made sushi. I setit up on my coffee table because I like the wood grain. We have to be resourseful LOL! I thought it looked so pretty! Below is my painting.

This was a joy to paint and I hope you enjoy the time lapse. There is a full 2 hour narrated tutorial up in Critique Club for members in case you want more info.

Supplies (affiliate links used)

Remember to use what you have, you will be surprised how well the supplies you have on hand can be adaped to different techniques, besides, it just makes since to see if what you have will work before buying something new. I need to remember that myself because I do like new supplies LOL! It IS really satisfying to use up supplies and make what you have work tho, it’s kinda addicting!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend and Easter if you celebrate it. It’s a bummer not to be able to see my parents and sister’s family like we usually do but hopefully it will mean things can go back to normal sooner. We are all healthy here, I hope you are too! Take care of yourself and each other and til next time happy crafting!

  4. Have never eaten sushi, but might be tempted to paint it! Have one question about the Micador paint. Some time back u did tutorial with Micador paints and each little round was named for one of the four seasons. I just loved them! Went to order them and though the price was very reasonable the shipping from Australia was $60! That put them out of my price range so my question is do you know of a USA distributor? Since the ones u used today can be purchased in the states in there a possibility we can get the “seasons” paints or maybe the seasons colors are included in the set u used today?


  5. I suuuuuuuck at watercolor, and I can’t handle such a finicky medium but your painting I love.
