Event details:

Art:

We will investigate a food still life and paint it in oils.  The canvas will be small, around 5" x 7", and will be pre-drawn to save time.  The style that we will be using will be loose and impressionistic, with clear step-by-step instructions.  It will make a perfect kitchen painting that will be vivid and moody.  The painting session will be short to allow for gastronomy!

Food:

We're entering Autumn, so flavours will be adjusted to what is in season.  Here is a sample menu:

1: Exotic Mushroom soup with ciabatta and truffle butter, paired with french chardonnay or chantilly

2: Chevin and beetroot ravioli with sage butter and walnuts, paired with french rose

3: Courgette gratin with avocado cream served with a sauvignon blanc

4. Irish cheesecake with lemon curd with a sweet wine

This is the picture I chose for our painting.  We will do a few compositional changes to it and then mix our colours. First we will create a value wash to create depth and form and then apply paint thickly (impasto), finally moving to highlights and finishing touches.
