Who doesn't like a slab of bread with jam? I don't think bread is the easiest to paint being close in value range, and a different kind of texture to anything else around. I have certainly seen my students struggle with painting bread. For one class, I even baked the bread for the still life to be sure of the right "crown" to the loaf. Baking the darn load to perfection turned out to be way easier than painting it so!
Today I felt the need to paint some more bread, putting some paint on a drawing from the day before yesterday, block-in shown here.
