I belong to an organic farm out in Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee and pick up my share at a drop off location about five minutes from my house on Monday afternoons. Monday evenings I spend washing, preparing and storing my vegetables. I don't do much with eggplant, frankly, but thought these were worthy of a little sketch. Here I filled in the ink with watercolor pencils on rather unforgiving sketch paper. Every once in a while, I reach for colored or watercolor pencils and am always a bit dismayed with the results. I suppose that if I used them more frequently, I might be happier. But the pale color of the vegetables begged me to put in some color.
