Sugar Art Museum - "Summer"

My piece for the Sugar Art Museum collaboration is based on the painting “Summer” by Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1563).
Summer is part of a series of portraits called Four Seasons where each face is made up of items relevant to that season. Spring is formed by flowers, Summer is fresh fruit and vegetables, Autumn images from the harvest and Winter dry twigs and rocks.
I remember studying Arcimboldo during History of Art lessons and being fascinated by the amount of detail in the paintings and how different his work was for that period. When I decided to use Summer as my inspiration I knew it was going to be a challenge and it certainly was taking 3 days to draw it out and paint it.

Supplies: paste colours gel colours sugarpaste modelling paste

Tools: paintbrushes ruler rolling pin knife dresden tool
