Salt and Pepper Shakers at Cafe SanteMy dinner was not colorful, so the salt and pepper shakers will have to do. Yeah, I know, they aren't colorful either. Of course I was hungry, and I am always the last one finished, so doing salt and pepper shakers before the meal comes works out well for me. My husband, brother, and sister-in-law are very patient people, but there is a limit.
I had chicken fricassee, and it was delicious! The place was very crowded, noisy, warm and cozy. Fun!
The paper I did this on is Canson Mi-Teintes in my hand bound sketchbook. I think it is pastel paper, and this particular color is an olive-y green. I did the drawing with a Gelly Roll pen, then used watercolor, and added white with a Prismacolor pencil. Gelly Roll pens are permanent and archival, and an be found in scrap booking stores. Prismacolor pencils can be purchased open stock in most art supply stores.
Now I'm going to go wrap a couple of Christmas presents. I'm getting there. How about you?
