EDM Challenge #84: Draw Bread

Bread.size.jpg

When the EDM bread challenge was posted last week, I took this photo in Baker and Spice, a wonderful bakery and gourmet food shop in Chelsea, London, UK.  It would have been wonderful to spend time in the bakery, sketching and painting because the smells were wonderful, but it was hard enough even getting a photo due to the size of the space in front of the bread counter.  I love bread and the most wonderful part of moving back to New York from Texas is the incredible variety of bread that is available fresh every day within walking distance of our apartment.  I was very uncertain about painting it, but tried to stay loose and just see what happened!  The walls were actually painted the brick red color that I tried to match.

AWESOME, SHIRLEY!!!!! LOVE THESE!

Oh gee, just when I thought I was done drooling over bread, you post a wonderful tasty-looking sketch. You did a great job making it look yummy.

Oh wow-- this is just wonderful!

I love this earthy painting of bread with the wonderful browns and golds. NYC and the SF Bay Area have that in common--lots of great artisan bread bakeries nearby.
