The oil painting by William Scott was selected for this post by British artist May van Millingen. Rather than photographing the finished dish, May created an illustration of a recipe by Jamie Oliver (pictured below) of mackerel with mixed tomato salad. Her illustrations have been commissioned by many leading brands and more of her work can be viewed on her website here.
