Pizza & Beer
I painted this for the the Calypso Moon Artist Movement challenge. Alice Thompson asked us to paint food that is bad for us. Now pizza, you may say, is not that bad. Well it is when you don't stop at two or three slices. But pizza is also good, and it's good with beer, which is also good in moderation. Very likely, pizza and beer was the menu for my first ever dinner party. It still makes a good dinner party. Tonight we're dining al fresco.
The toppings on the pizza proved challenging to paint. It's a random jumble of color and shadows, and it was difficult to keep track of all the little bits and keep it looking lively and appetizing. This is a 9x12 watercolor.
