I've never painted something like this before, and it was a challenge! Getting the detail without loosing the freshness and making the colours work together as a whole.
I am pleased with the outcome and a bonus I get to eat the cupcake now with a nice cup of tea!
I just wanted to show you my new easel 'small board holder'. It's perfect! My husband has been busy and made this for me. It prevents shadow overhang as you can see the top of the easel and I can get to all of the board without the easel getting in the way.
Charming! This cupcake is all but dancing on the plate, swirling its delicate shadow as it twirls. Inviting. How did you hold off eating it long enough to paint?ReplyDelete
I did think about buying 2 cupcakes in case I was tempted! But managed to hold off till the end :-)Delete
Summertime on the lawn! I prefer the painting to the original :-)ReplyDelete
Evocative of lazy summer days.....
Pink much better colour for the cake case and I like the 'suggestion' of the strawberry and stalk, not too detailed.
Thanks ebbybow, summertime and picnics was the feeling I was trying to evoke, so pleased you got it!Delete
