drawing biscuits step by step

Today  I drew two biscuits for the Everyday in May challenge of Draw a Cookie.
I thought that I would share my drawing process with you. I use watercolour pencil in a Moleskine Watercolour sketchbook.
Everyday in May is an art challenge I have participated four times in previous years.  A list of daily challenges is provided at the beginning of May and everyone draws/paints their interpretation. See everyone else’s at
These are based on the list of Danny Gregory Everyday Matters challenges.
Here is my drawing of a “Cookie.
” In Australia we call them biscuits and these are two Arnott’s classics. A Monte Carlo and a Shortbread Cream. These two are not my absolute favourites, but definitely part of growing up in Australia. The Delta Cream biscuit was added later……
Monte Carlo: a raspberry and cream fondant sandwiched between two golden syrup, honey and coconut biscuits.
Shortbread creams: two vanilla shortbreads with vanilla cream in the centre

The finished drawing. It took about two hours
