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.
The materials I used:
Faber-Castell HB pencil
Faber-Castell Polychromos coloured pencils
Prismacolor coloured pencils
Van Gogh tube watercolours
Staedtler Karat Aquarell watercolour pencils
Black Micron pen
