Chef and Hot Pies Tag

It’s winter here in Australia and cold nights and when I’m lucky hubby makes homemade individual hot pies. Mark’s pies are so fantastic and mouth watering delicious… and when I saw this chef image, I just had to have it to work with… as it immediately made me think of my Italian  hubby and his brilliant home cooking!! I found this Webster’s acetate frame and I knew it was perfect as I wanted a red and white check pattern on there somewhere just like tablecloths in little Italian Restaurants and this fitted the bill exactly! I created some cobble stones to make this street scene more authentic. Most chefs wear back and white check pants so I got out my Black Copic  Multiliner to create these checked pants.  I used my Copics to colour this and to create a vintage style green wall with paint half faded.
