Super Simple Winter Vege BurgersTuesday, February 01, 2011
Food painting artwork30 x 30cm acrylic on paper. The paper is no ordinary paper, it is textured Hahnemuhle 300 gsm 100% alpha cellulose which is acid-free fibre of vegetable origin.
This is a super slick stencil style painting of charmingly cartoonish burger-mushrooms in a 1950's colour palette. Thanks to the Japanese anime style painter Madoka Kinoshita for inspiring the clean crisp lines and patience required for this piece. She recently did a three part video series of her painting methods which I found fascinating. It left me itching to try this style again. Now after completing this piece, I really know that while I enjoy the results, I really don't enjoy the process. Next time I try a stencil style piece, there will be changes to the method! I found that I am actually quicker and at least as accurate painting freehand rather than using a cut out mask. Who would've thunk?
