Here's another entry for the Different Strokes from Different Strokes blog. This time the reference photo, posted by Karin Jurick, is a plate of sushi. California rolls are my favorite. I'm not crazy for sushi, but these, with their avocado, crab and cucumber, are quite tasty.
As I was working on this painting, I realized I had painted them too high on the panel, so I had to create a parsley garnish in the lower foreground for balance. The hardest part of this painting was making the puddle of soy sauce look believable.
