I thought I'd post my veg assignment for the SBA diploma course from 2006 for my friends who are doing the course now and waiting for their veg assignment marks. Good luck with the marks, I remember it well, waiting for the marks with anticipation and a bit of dread!
I am a chef by trade and so am slaving away in the kitchen of my business most nights.It can be a stressful job and the key is not to panic,otherwise the mind goes blank,then you're in trouble.When really busy perceptions change,time slows down and movements speed up;you're riding an adrenaline wave.
Cooking is creative and each plate (hopefully) is an art form;colours and textures to balance of flavours.
I find drawing therapeutic and it is a self medication for stress.
Recently I thought about doing some food pictures.I make a lot of garlic mushrooms at work so I've done some sketches of the ingredients;mushrooms,garlic and parsley. Of course I couldn't paint all the ingredients,just the botanical ones!
Eventually I will do a finished painting of garlic mushrooms and hang it at work if its any good!
