A crusty loaf baked using the very tolerant and adaptable no knead bread recipe, developed by Jim Lahey. This became a lesson in landscape painting, with miniature valleys, hills and peaks, all looking slightly volcanic…
I was interested to see how rich and intense I could get the colours and contrast by building up multiple glazes of ink. I ended up using a hairdryer to dry the ink between layers, so I could finish the picture before we ate the loaf for lunch!
(The white line down the centre is the wonky dental floss stitching I use to bind my sketchbooks.)
