Rainbow Cook Book

I couldn’t get that Dean Martin song out of my head when I was working on this piece. Hannah, who provided the recipe for the colour red on her blog homebakedonline.com, talked about her experiences of working in a takeaway as a teenager. I was trying to imagine a takeaway pizza place in Italy – not a rubbish one but authentic like Hannah  describes – and so the Vespa had to be included. I created a watercolour ink wash which I scanned and dropped in to give the red theme. As well as representing the sky, it has the feel of tomato pulp. The texture also reminds me the distressed walls you find in old Italian towns.   JOHN
