More Kitteh Scribbles And Food Porn

30 Jun

30 kitteh

Got almost to the end of the day without doing ANY art. So I grabbed the piece of kitty scribbling I started the other night and carried on with it. Sparta was mooching around on MY chair so I did a few scribbles of her and then just played with my old-fashioned dip pen and Indian ink, enjoying the scratchiness of the flexible nib across the heavily textured Bockingford paper. It’s so unpredicatable, unlike the Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens I normally use which are smooth and consistent.

30 shortbread

And here’s the food porn – freshly baked elderflower shortbread made with our home-made elderflower cordial. I used 4 ounces of plain flour, 2 ounces of white Spelt flour, 4 ounces of softened butter, 2 ounces of castor sugar and three teaspoons of elderflower cordial, all squished together and rolled into 16 little balls and squidged onto a baking tray and baked at Gas mark 3 for about 12 minutes.

    This is interesting and I love the sketch. You have found a great dynamic in this page of pen marks.

      Thanks, I enjoyed just getting into the flow of it and not having to try and draw something in front of me

    I’ve just started using a dipping pen and love the contrast to the fine liners. Took a bit of getting used to though.

      It does! I kept trying to stop it being scratchy until I ealised it was supposed to be like that! Now I go with the flow.

    Love the sketches Rosie and the cookies look scrummy. Ok, what’s level 3 on the gas? Approx temp in C or F? Or do you know?

      325F or 170C – are you going to try them?

      • paperstew July 2, 2013 at 14:15 #

        Yep, but I need to modify it more to be gluten free. So they won’t look as beautiful as yours.

      • Rosie Scribblah July 2, 2013 at 14:26 #

        Ah yes, Spelt isn’t gluten free. What will you use?

    It’s cool how well the cats stand out through the contrast of detail levels. I’ve never tried bockingford paper, but I’ve seen it in a catalog before. 🙂

      I don’t normally use it because it’s extremely white, but this was a cast-off and I coloured it with a tea bag before I started.
