Hey there! Here is a mixed-media painting I finished yesterday, with a couple of pictures I took throughout the process. The bread was probably the most challenging in this one, although the leafy greens came up pretty close.
As I am advancing in my art journey, I am noticing things that I need more practice in and just tweeks in general I have to make in my art. One of the things that I've noticed is that I have to be more careful in order to keep my work cleaner. I regretted adding gray shadow to the background once I finished the sandwich and I decided to clean that up in Photoshop, leaving it completely white. From now on I am going to keep the backgrounds of this type of illustration work with minimal or no background shadow.
That said, I am not a minimalist in any way, shape or form. My other drawings and oil paintings are going to have backgrounds and are going to keep the sketchy/unfinished quality to them because I really like how this looks in art.
Have a great Sunday!
