Pan, pancake, lemons and sand-paper

A week late, but here’s a kitchen scene from Shrove Tuesday. The fresh pancakes were too delicious to sketch mid-cooking, so I saved one after we’d eaten our fill and drew it once the pan had cooled. It was the scorched patterns on the pancake surface that had caught my eye, but the brown lines I drew to describe them were too strong; very fine sand-paper helped knock them back but it still looks over-cooked! A small piece of wet/dry paper is handy tucked in the back of a sketchbook…
