Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Lips

Thursday Art and Dinner Date Bugs Bunny Lips

Art Date: This week’s art prompt is Lips

Welcome to Thursday Art and Dinner Date! This week’s optional art prompt is Lips! Bugs Bunny pulled out his “falsies” (eyelashes that is) and smacked on the lipstick for this week’s photo shoot. I think he looks so cute! I drew Bugs with markers and I used a royalty-free background that I found on Pixabay.

Graphite Pencil Lips

I really enjoyed this week’s prompt! I tried drawing some pouty lips with graphite pencils. It was quite challenging, at first I wasn’t sure if I could make them look realistic or not, but somehow it came together. And no, they’re not mine! Here’s the post where I show you step-by-step, how to draw these lips.

The real-time drawing lesson is on my YouTube channel Rain Frances Art, if you’d like to follow along! For a list of my real-time and time-lapsed art lessons, please click this link: Rain Frances Art – Drawing and Painting Lessons.

Luscious Watercolor Lips!

Do you remember those candy lips from when you were a kid? I can’t remember the name of them, but I used to buy them at the candy store, they tasted like cinnamon. I think my watercolor lips look like those candy lips! This was a fun one to do! If you’d like to see the post where I show you my process, just click on the link. I also have the real-time watercolor lesson video up on Rain Frances Art if you’d like to give it a go!

Dinner Date: Pho-Style Soup with Chicken

How To Make Pho Style Soup garnished with chicken, cilantro and green onions

For our dinner date, I made a delicious Pho-Style Soup with Chicken (click for the written recipe). It’s not the authentic version of Vietnamese Pho Soup. I made it the way I like it! It’s a very hearty and comforting soup and the recipe is quite versatile. It’s done in about an hour. Yummy!

Here are the video instructions for the soup:

Hello Rain, your art work is always awesome. Love the bunny and the little pig. The soup looks yummy! Take care, have a great day and happy week!



Bugs’ girlfriend is puckering up for her favorite bunny. That’s great!! Your graphite and watercolor lips are beautiful, too!


…your Pho-style soup looks like great winter treat!

Rain, your lips are amazing!!! And the pig is darling! I’m sorry, I don’t care for mushrooms, but I bet your soup would be delicious without them. Have a great weekend! Hugs to you!


Lovely lips and your food looks delicious.

All the best Jan

I have never been very good with lips so I will, for sure, be looking at your tutorials. I love your pouty lips and of course Bugs takes the cake 🙂 Your soup looks awesome and I will take you at your word that it is easy to put together. I will be looking into that recipe too. Your post is full of good stuff this week, Rain. So how did you celebrate Valentines Day? I made my husband a funny card and then we had yummy milk shakes for a treat after dinner (Culver’s … you have to eat them with a spoon and they are the best). I bought chocolates for my daughter and her roommate and some for the staff at her Nursing home (and, of course, there was enough left over for ME 🙂 Haven’t heard much about Jack … how is he doing?

Beautiful luscious lips! And lip-smacking good pho soup — so beautifully styled, it looks like it comes from a restaurant!


What a nice post! Graphite lips and a sweet pig. That recipe looks delicious too. Thank you! Aloha!


I love how you created the lips both in graphite and painting. As I mentioned earlier I am going to make that soup. It looks so good. I love your new website, Sis!


Oh wow on your ‘lips’ art Rain! LOVE it. The soup looks so good too.


Well, the only lips you’ll see in my post are those sipping wine but my Cork Poppers post does have some terrific food and wine! Love those Valentine lips! Happy Valentine’s Day!
