"Last Nights Dinner" Kitchen Lynn Cohen

Last nights dinner. I actually drew and painted and ate this all at the same time. Most of the food is eaten. Crazy I know, but I guess I am obsessed. Sorry the scanner is blurry on the left side. Hopefully it will cover up some of the write-os. ;-) Like typos.

The bowl is from several I picked up at a garage sale years ago. I still like them.

Prismacolor Bold
Prismacolor 08
Paperchase markers (2, old)
Gelly roll pen white (for trying to make the fork look silver)
Winsor & Newton watercolors
Nature Sketchbook 6 in. x 12 in. 130 lb. paper

Have a Creative Week!


  1. Excellent multi-tasking, Lynn! I love the pattern on the bowl and how colorful it all is. I keep thinking I will sketch my meals but somehow forget and it them every time.

    1. I know I kept eating too and before I knew it there was very little left to draw! LOL

  2. I think for me eating and painting at the same time would be like trying to pat my dead with one hand and rub my tummy in a circle at the same time as we did as children. Never could do that. You have access to such a wide variety of fresh veg, it has to taste as good as it looks. Interesting painting, I like it.

    1. Thanks Jez. Yes I do create some crazy challenges for myself don't I? I like mixing it up and am quite good I think at multi-tasking.
      When I draw at Tacos Jalisco, the Mexican restaurant where I go for lunch and to draw I often spill food on my page and just mix it in as more color/paint. It works for me. You are right that here in California we do get a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit all year round. Lots local, some imported.

  3. I agree, multi-tasking. That's great. Your dinner looks delish! Thanks for the recipe. Nice plate too.:)

  4. Lynn I enjoy your food series. So healthy and it makes me hungry! More pls!

  5. You are making me hungry. lol Great sketch of your dinner.
