2007: The Year of the Ham Sandwich

Click image to see larger view.

Would you like that on rye? This was a fun and fast watercolor. I started by going to a local deli and ordering a sandwich to paint. A few strange looks as I gave them the exact kind of sandwich I wanted. I took it home, photographed it and ate it.
I like this composition a lot and the contrast of the dark blue to the far right and the white bread makes the sandwich stand out.
I added the mat under the plate and the tooth picks to the top of the sandwich.
Favorite parts you ask? Well, I'd say the crust on the half on the right and the pickle. Or did you mean my favorite part to eat? My friend Detra at the deli did a great job and made a delicious sandwich! I hope the painting is as good.
