Ceps

Fresh from the market this morning. This gives me ideas for a new wallhanging with ceps, but it will have to wait...





I like those two because you can see they have grown up together! Only waiting to be fried in my frying pan today, September 15th, 2007. Their colours are nice too, all shades of browns, ocres, whites, perhaps I should do a watercolour painting too...?

Fantastic sketch of mushrooms, I just LOVE the style (and skill) of your drawings.
I wish I was there to share in this delicious feast, yummy.

They were delicious, although next time I'll fry the feets (can I say that?ร  first and the heads last cause the heads were a bit soft.

The drawings, its good to exercise cause there are always things we criticize which makes us learn... I found it particularly difficult to show that these mushrooms lay on a hard board and not on a pillow! My board is a bit fluffy:)

Ceps.Now I know the French word for mushrooms. The sketches are lovely. I recently looked through your photos of paintings, designs and fabric sewings. So delicate and ethereal. Did you live once by the ocean? You represent ocean creatures so well. I especially like the jelly fish/man-of-war? depictions. You have an interesting eye--the watcher.

Hi Andrea

Hello Suki, in fact, mushrooms in general are "champignons" and this special kind is "cรชpes", I don't know what this is in english...
