Two more sketches...daily drawings continue


the first is really an everyday matters sketch...I found a recipe in a magazine at school during lunch called Tagliatore al Pomodora which more or less translates as tomatoes with spaghetti or tagliatorre which is a little wider than spaghetti. There was an extensive shopping list for the tomato sauce which I bought...ummm the can of tomatoes imported Marzano tomatoes from Italy cost FOUR dollars...and ahhh i need to go back and buy another one...OH well...everyone wants to know how good is this sauce going to be...I will let you know when I stop and get the other can...I think i need another onion too...maybe its onion tomato sauce...but all the colors did make for a great looking sketch...and I wrote the recipe above it so I would be sure nNOT to loose it:>

Wonderful sketch and YES, it IS very colorful.
BTW, it looks like you need 2 more red onions also. I wonder what makes these canned tomatoes so "special." Be sure to let us all know!

Gorgeous, Maggie! AND it makes me hungry. If I bring some wine, can I share the Tagliatore al Pomodora??

Love the sheen on that red onion. Great contrast of colors with the green olive oil.
