Ranch 99 Asian Market is a great place to sketch on a dark rainy night. The delicate pink of these cleaned whole squids on crushed ice was the first thing to grab my attention. I Googled "soak squid" to see if it was a variety of squid but from what I read, I think it was pre-soaked in milk or buttermilk for several hours to tenderize it.
Hanging Fowl, ink& watercolor
Even though I've sketched their hanging fowl before, there were a greater variety this time including one on the right that I thought looked like a rabbit.
Eggplant & Bitter Melon
I enjoyed the juxtaposition of the similar shapes but different colors piled beside each other.
Dragon Fruit from Vietnam
The Dragon Fruit again grabbed my attention and one of these days I'll get around to eating one. I fought the temptation to shop instead of sketching so didn't bring anything home this time.
