This subject was inspired by the modern hyperreal movement and in particular the artist Tjalf Sparnaay, who specialises in painting food. This is my modern take on a traditional still life. Many hyperreal artists paint on a huge scale with the objects being massively oversized. Painting in this style on a smaller scale calls for much better brush control and technique; in fact it's more challenging in every way!
This sixteen part lesson provides over seventeen hours of tuition. I found it absorbing and rewarding. I was so satisfied with the end result and I can just feel my mouth watering at the thought of that first bite of this scrumptious, mouthwatering dish. If you haven't already guessed, I love burgers!

Brushes used in this lesson: Michael James Smith Professional Brush Set
Painting surface used in this lesson: Artists Exhibition Panel
In August 2019 Michael switched brush manufacturers and as a result the series numbers/names are different in some of the lessons. In order to be able to complete the lessons regardless of which set you’re using we have put together a chart which lists the equivalent brushes from both sets.
