Here's an update on my pastry chef painting. Ideally, I'd like to get both this and the tar/feathering painting done by the Springville show. Time will be tight to get it finished, but I'll give it a shot. I tend to work on specific areas until they're completed and then move onto the next. I debate whether it's the best way to complete a painting, but I know it's the most comfortable way for me. I've found it's best to work into the surrounding objects/shapes so I don't have any sharp, abrupt edges. That's why I've painted the edge of the chef's white coat so it blends with the metal behind it.
