"Lean Meal"

Lean Meal
5 x 7"
oil on 1/4" gessoed board

  I went to shop for meat few days ago, just for finding a perfect piece of raw meat to paint to do the painting challenge of this week. But as you can see, I was not very satisfied with the meat on the market that day, I made a quick decision finally, chose a pack of lean ground beef instead. It is really interesting painting the ground meat--not too bloody but still have the raw meat feeling in it.

  1. Instantly recognizable and beautifully painted. Love the realism too, especially for the challenge. I mean, how many of us can afford a nice steak very often these days? For lots of folks, true creativity really shines when you have to make do with ground round. :)
    Love it Joanna - and the night kiosks below too.
