"A-Ha!" I said to myself, "Fish and Chips is an oven baked meal that will give me fifteen minutes to complete a pastel under pressure exercise!" So, I put the chips in the oven, set the timer and gave myself fifteen minutes to create the following:
|Rejected! Apple and Pear|
Why draw fruit, you may wonder? Well, because two minutes before I set the timer, I discovered a couple of sad looking left-over pieces of fruit, uneaten and rejected from the kid's lunchboxes. I figured that surely fruit has featured in an awful lot of wannabe artists creations over the centuries. And that I should join the ranks and become one too!
The pear took eight minutes to draw, the apple took seven. I was then rather naughty and gave myself a bonus three minutes (because as far as I'm concerned, I make the rules, so I can break them to suit!) to shade in some shadows in an attempt to "ground" the picture. Dunno if it worked. Oh well!
