So what should we do?
The answer is pretty simple... why not try to reproduce the most famous paintings of the past using nothing but Bacon ?
Step 1: Materials
Step 2: The Bacon Palette
Cut and tear the slices of Bacon.
Sort them by shape , color , texture ...
Step 3: Choose a Famous Painting to Be Reproduced
anyway, you should avoid those paintings with too much details,
and look for those that have a style that makes them easy to reproduce with slices and strips of Bacon!
For my personal taste, Van Gogh paintings and The Scream from Edvard Munch are perfect subjects. Let's go!
When you have decided, print the painting in A4 paper, and put it on you workplace. Cover with a piece of glass or clear acrylic.
Step 4: Reproduce It!
Just follow the guide and redraw the painting, by putting the strips of bacon on the glass or acrylic plate.
Step 5: Results
For The Starry Night reproduction i just shifted the colors of the photo to blue, no other actions where made in Photoshop.
Here there is a link for the full-resoultion image of my reproduction of "Starry Night" and The "Scream". Have fun!
