A Garlic Recipe

I realized today that I don’t really have the correct colors to paint garlic in watercolors.  In other words, I need a better recipe!  Well, if all else fails, my motto is add paint splatters!


I added a few color pencils at the end.

Speaking of recipes, I wanted to share one of my favorite ones using garlic.  I used to get these recipe cards in the mail and I loved them because they have a picture of what the food is supposed to look like on one side and the recipe on the other side:

I usually add fresh parmesan cheese at the end.  Hope you enjoy it!

Happy Painting!  🙂

Garlic Prep

I don’t know about you…but I LOVE GARLIC!!!  And since today is National Garlic Day, I just had to celebrate!

In preparation for the day, I decided to sketch a garlic bulb in three different art mediums in my sketchbook yesterday:


I would also like to paint them in watercolor and will post later today when I do!  🙂

There is nothing like the smell of garlic roasting in the oven!  Here is one recipe I found at this link:  http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/roasted_garlic/

How do you like to use fresh garlic?  I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Drawing!  🙂
