Week 1: Cornbread

It went pretty well apart from my attack of severe tendinitis. I had planned to do the plate the bread was on, but it was an octagonal plate and I couldn’t get the dimensions right. I had also planned to use a plaid tea towel in the background, but with the tendinitis I was lucky to get the main subject done.

This took me three hours. In time I hope to improve that and be able to add the details I want for a fuller composition. I should have used a paper template to protect the background when I spritzed the chocolate colour with a toothbrush.

I’m using a small cartouche using an Ouroboros stamp with the information for the weekly sketch inside.

    My goodness, you are an excellent artist! The cornbread looks great (both the “real” and drawn versions). The ourboros stamp is a brilliant idea. 🙂 I’m still trying to dig out/find my art supplies, but haven’t given up on getting back into it.

    • Thanks Bev, some days I am a good artist but I don’t practice enough. I should have been able to dash off the plate the cornbread was sitting on and I couldn’t come to grips with it.

      So gradually I hope to improve to the point where everything I sketch looks like what it’s supposed to be.

    What’s the second prompt? I can’t find the list anymore… Or are we supposed to come up with our own?
