Ready, Steady, Bake.
Since I'm a big fan of the series then I guess subconsciously this was my inspiration, although I didn't think of it at the time. 'Ready, Steady, Bake' seemed like an appropriate title though.
I kinda like the eggs reflected in the yellow and blue bowls, but I most proud of the metal fastener on the jar. It took me AGES but I really wanted to take my time with it and get it right.
This took about 6 hours to paint and quite a bit longer to come up with the initial composition. Square panels are not always an easy fit for a composition, so sometimes it takes a while to decide what works. I have decided to slow things right down and take my time over some compositions for larger panels. The little 6x6 inch panels are great for studies but I do prefer painting larger.
This one is 10 x 10 inches.
I'm working on more ideas for paintings this size.
