This Month there are many things on my plate!
First of all Charlie at Doodlewash invited all of us for a month of a virtual doodlewash dinners!
The month of May hold a new sketching and watercolor adventure the theme that Charlie choose is “Food” so  you will see from me lots of delicious food illustrations!

I choose to watercolor a traditional French Chocolate Mousse and I am giving to  my own w a mint twist flavor! ❤

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.

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 and for sketching. I also used a  Pigma Micron Black Ink pen #005 Brown #01 and a Pink gel pen over a Mix Media sketchbook!

With this celebration  I am also join Charlie at doodlewash celebrating a #DoodlewashDinner !  You are welcome to join with your doodlewash!
