. . . for the library cookbook! Yes, I have finally done all that I can do. The cookbook must be produced very soon (thankfully not by me), and this is my last illustration. In case you can't tell what it is, it's a quiche! We had, I think, three quiche recipes submitted, so I went with the one with spinach, just to be able to add any other color than yellow/brown or a shade thereof (between crust and egg, there's not much else). I also made the pie pan blue, just for fun.
This was a more challenging drawing than some, since the crust and the dish were easy to delineate but the filling was more wet-in-wet and ended up looking like it didn't belong in the same illustration. I compromised by going back in afterwards with some pen squiggles meant to further define the green and brown bits, and I think it's at least recognizable as a quiche?
Honestly, I don't much care--I'm done! I have to admit, though, that this has been a good assignment, because it's given me regular practice, not to mention momentum. I probably won't be posting much art here for the next few weeks, but then (hopefully) I will be posting a LOT of art, because I'm taking a vacation (a proper, 10-day vacation) at the end of September, when I will be going to, drumroll, FRANCE to paint for an entire week in the country!
Between now and then, though, will be many mundane, time-consuming weekend tasks that won't include much painting. Unless I get inspired by something or other. Stay tuned.
