A Favorite Subject

Red Rice and Fish

I love drawing fish. This one, red rice and fish, is my favourite meal.



Just for the info of some of the readers: This picture took about 8 hours to do. 6 hours non-stop last night starting at 10.30 pm and two hours this morning. That is why I work at night, no need to stop to eat lunch, wash dishes, answer the doorbell etc.
But I ate other things before drawing this picture: One package of salted peanuts, Diet Coke,  premium chocolate...all ingredients absolutely necessary to get charcoal to do my bidding.
Now I must go eat some Ritchie's biriyani to replenish my energy...and then get some sleep.

Love the red rice illustration, reminds me of trips to Kerala and having grown up eating basmati rice, despised the red rice as a typical teenager..only to find it is good for you, years later as a single woman in the US.
So while I refused to eat the heirloom variety red rice grown in the familys paddy field for years. Now I buy them @ $10.00 for a pound of red rice which is probably hybrid and not heirloom. SIGH!
C'est Le vie!! Lesson in life never turn your nose up at something becuase of your arrogance and ignorance.
