Today I am bringing to our Doodlewash Dinner a lovely Apple Pie. I missed to post it on the National Apple Pie Day because I had no time to finish my watercolor and finally I had time to finish it today 😉 I think that Apple Pie is always welcome to any dinner.  I love anything made with apples especially combined with the flavor of cinnamon.

I hope that you enjoy the pie!

Today I am sharing this watercolor that I made few days ago and I gave the title of  “Whimsical Creature”!

She brings to the world love, flowers and happiness! ❤

#DoodlewashDinner at the Beach

Today to join Charlie for our “Doodlewash Dinner” I decided to bring the idea of the place where we will have our dinner! 😉
And I bring the beach to you! A dinner with a front view of the blue ocean…isn’t it great?

Sorry no food from me today. I was thinking what to paint and since my time today is not much I decided that was a good idea to include the idea of a place and what is better than an ocean view. What do you think?

I like to share this watercolor painting a seascape that I made some time ago. I have the original here framed on the wall. I kept this one for myself and it is just in front of me on my desk! I love to look at it every day when I am seat at my computer. I purposely placed it there a bit high than my 24″ screen, because I feel that is a relaxing view to rest my eyes on it, the color palette is very delicate I feel peace when I look at it. I wanted to have an imaginary  open window on the ocean inside the room.

I also wanted one of my painting to be the inspirational motivator for my daily artworks and doodlewashes  or inspirer for other watercolor paintings it is a constant reminder to be creative and enjoy what I do. It is actually a great idea to try, surround yourself from your beautiful creations or choose a single one to focus on it, enjoy them every day and let them inspire you for more. ❤

Details about my doodlewash:
I used a basic watercolor palette Artist’s Loft Fundamental watercolor pan set  this pan set is considered for beginners but I enjoy use it for the variety of colors. The paper used is a Watercolor Cold Press  pad 140 lb size 11 x 15 inches.

With this I am  joining  Charlie at doodlewash  for a #DoodlewashDinner You are welcome to join with your doodlewash!

#DoodlewashDinner – National Shrimp Day!

Today I found out that is National Shrimp Day which is perfect for our Doodlewash Dinner!

Shrimps are delicious and a great source of Omega3 they are consumed worldwide and there are numerous dishes and recipes to choose from paired with some nice white wine. I was born on a city on the Mediterranean Sea in Italy “Naples”  which is very close to the famous Capri Island and to the well-known Amalfi Coast where there are amazing places to go to eat fresh and great seafood which is a favorite to many!

Think about a great Shrimp Saute or a fresh Shrimp Cocktail, or more a great quick Shrimp linguini and so on… I know we’re getting hungry here! 😉
For my watercolor today I painted a single beautiful Shrimp I couldn’t choose any dish… so I wanted to paint the beauty of the shrimp itself which is a lovely sea creature!

Today is National Crepe Suzette Day!

I enjoyed to watercolor this delicious French Dessert I had no much time so I made it very fast and post it very late since I wasn’t home! I love Crepes they can be made sweet or salty  and this day brings up my memories of travelling to France years ago when I was still in Italy I had the opportunity to travel and visit beautiful places in Europe. I have been to France twice and both times was wonderful. I remember when In one of the two trip I visited the French Atlantic Coast going to Bretagne and Normandy I visited lovely places on the coast and I ate lots of Crepes, they were so delicious and often made just in front of me. I loved all the sweet ones, but I also loved the seafood ones! I had great time there!  I hope that for today you enjoy my watercolor ones! 😉

Crêpe Suzette

Crêpe Suzette is a French dessert consisting of a crêpe with beurre Suzette, a sauce of caramelized sugar and butter, tangerine or orange juice, zest, and Grand Marnier or orange Curaçao liqueur on top, served flambé.
I found a recipe that seems to be original French if you would like to try to make them here is the recipe! ❤
You can read more facts about the origins of the Crepe Suzette here!

The word mousse in French means foam, and chocolate is for chocolate.  Mousse au chocolate  translates as foamy chocolate.

With a few rare exceptions, all chocolate mousse recipes have two ingredients:  dark Chocolate is the essential element of the dessert, and egg white, whipped into a foam and added to the melted chocolate to provide the light and foamy texture essence of the recipe.

This is the traditional mousse, additional ingredients can be added to change the taste and texture of the dessert, if you search you can find many recipes.
