I am painting for a food show in April 2011. I've come to realize a lot of food is brownish, which isn't much fun. I think I've got fruit, seafood and vegetables covered. Meat could be problematic. Cooked, it's brown; raw, it's prettier, but there's a certain ick factor.
Especially raw poultry. I took images of a roasted chicken but they didn't appeal to me. One day at a stop light (I spend a lot of time trying to turn left in Northern Virginia) a poultry truck pulled up beside me. The image of a plucked bird on the side of white truck was stunning, with delicate blues, pinks and oranges. So, I'm trying to decide.
Maybe a small poulet....
