Tomato And Mayonnaise Sandwich Half

"Tomato And Mayonnaise Sandwich Half"
8" x 8" Oil on canvas

I put finishing touches on this painting early this morning, but mostly completed it last night.   What a fun painting !   I also worked on the other tomato sandwich painting, but it has a ways to go yet to be finished.
In the above work, some of those black "dots" in the mayonnaise are black pepper specks.  I love to eat tomato sandwiches !  Below are some photos of different stages of this painting.

You can easily see how I change things a bit as I go;  in a way that is more creative than painstakingly drawing a detailed sketch on canvas and then "coloring" it.    With other mediums, like watercolor, one might have to by necessity make a detailed drawing first on paper; these photos of mine just show the way I personally like to work.   Everyone has their own method that works best for them, and that is as it should be.
