Chicken Pot Pie Celebration, ink & watercolor, 5x8"

Chicken Pot Pie Celebration, ink & watercolor, 5x8"

When we met for sketch night at Fat Apples Restaurant I decided to celebrate my move into the new studio with a sinfully decadent chicken pot pie. It came with a great salad and two unnecessary rolls since there was already too much to eat. By the time I finished sketching it, the pot pie cooled off just the right amount to eat. Yum!

Fat Apples has these two large café umbrellas in the middle of the restaurant at a counter where your can eat instead of at a table. It was interesting drawing them from below and to the side and trying to understand what was going on in there. Everyone finished sketching and was waiting for me so I didn’t get to complete the sketch. That’s a waitress with pigtails behind the counter. She actually had a pony tail but turned her head so I drew it in two places.

(Question: Why is a pony tail single but pig tails come in pairs? Pigs only have one tail, right?)

I’m still working on getting a post written and photos taken about the studio. I tried making a 360 degree video in the studio, explaining what I was showing, but when I watched it I discovered I lost track of where I started and actually did 360 degrees plus another 90. It was fun so I’ll try again.

  1. I LOVE your sketch! So lively and fun :0)
    Tell me, do you add colour later?
    And that’s a good question about pig tails – the mind boggles! :0)

    • Yep, I painted them at the table before I ate. I usually paint at the same time I sketch unless there’s not enough time or it’s extremely inconvenient (like on the subway) or inappropriate. Jana

  4. Your dinner looks delicious – fab sketch.

    390 degrees around your studio – brilliant and exactly what I’d do. Look forward to a peak inside.

  5. Yum. I tried sketching before eating but found that it wasn’t a mood pleaser. I take photos instead.
