Bread PuddingWednesday, June 23, 2010
Food painting artwork25 x 30cm 190?gsm watercolour paper collage. Inspired by the texture of the pudding itself, we have triangles of bread and pieces of dried fruit, all made from paper and overlayed with a semi transparent sheet of paper hand lettered in coloured pencil with the actual recipe in a bold and magazine-layout influenced style.
This piece is one of the original artworks from the first incarnation of the recipe book from around 10 years ago. The original concept was the same as the current one, with one important difference. Originally the entire book was going to be hand lettered and the artwork for each recipe was going to include the text as part of the design as you can see here. Clearly I didn't realise what a tremendous amount of painstaking work that was going to be. The project was abandoned. It's only now with a gentle shove from hubby and the more sensible separation of text and images that the cookbook is back and humming along.
