Pancake Day

pancakes-0Another (quickish – just under an hour) experiment with Corel’s pastels, with some follow-up Photoshop tweaks. Pancakes! To be honest, I only knew it was Shrove Tuesday when Nick Hewer told me in opening today’sĀ Countdown.Ā I’ll have to get some ingredients and have a good toss some other day of the week… I look forward to that.

      Thanks Geke, as ever – and ha, I was actually trying to go looser on this one, but the texture of the pancakes was too enticing!

  4. Omg my first thought was “why is someone taking a picture of their pancakes on a plate?” Can’t believe it’s a painting! Well done, Jacob!

      Thanks, Catherine! I can only offer my sympathies on being Countdown-less… I would miss it hugely as well!

  5. I’ll be right over to taste these!!! Hehe…Yum!! What a delicious sketch you made here! I love this Jacob! But again…back to more important things. When are serving these and what time should I come round? šŸ˜‰

      Hahaha, thanks Charlie. Please do come over and sample my dreadful cooking! It’ll make you feel better about your own.

      Come over any time! If they’re not ready yet, we can bridge the gap with Benji and The Crystal Maze and that weird talking teddy show and ET and whatever on earth else has been mentioned.

      • I don’t think anything would make me feel better about my own cooking. It’s dreadful!! Lol Luckily Philippe is an amazing cook so I don’t ever have to eat my cooking. And that sounds like an awesome line up!! A bit crazy, and perfect! šŸ‘šŸ»šŸ˜ƒ

        Yes, you jammy beggar! (Though I’m still positive your cooking isn’t as bad you say.) I must find myself a chef, or at the very least one who doesn’t set the smoke alarm off when making toast.

      • My cooking is as bad as I say because it’s nonexistent. I just never have really cooked anything more than an egg. šŸ˜Š I tried to get serious once and cook but was only mildly successful and totally bored. I just don’t enjoy it. But I do love eating!! Hehe

        I can do pasta, which is fine as I can basically live on that! I think the boredom is half my problem as well. But oh yes, I love eating too! Haha! šŸ˜‰

      Thanks, Rebecca! It was all I could do seeing as I wasn’t up to making my own real ones šŸ˜‰ and indeed, Painter’s behaviour does give some exciting results. I’ll miss it when the trial is over!
