Each illustration begins with composition sketches - then I prepare, style, and photograph the food. These photographs are used as references for my digital painting technique. Sharply contrasted focal points and effective highlighting take the viewer's eye around and through each piece. What you don't see is the blue tape holding up the left onion half, the vegetable oil on the herbs to make them look "dewey," and the kitchen step ladder to make me tall enough to see through the viewfinder when the camera is on the tripod.
