Who Gets the Cherry?

This is the second cupcake I have painted this week – same cupcake but I used a neon pink tint on the canvas this time.   Last time I used blue.   It really didn’t affect the outcome as much as I thought it would even though I left “bits of the tint” on each painting.     So … who gets the cherry?

Lots of Pink

Looking at everyday things in a new way can be exciting!   This is another attempt to get up close, crop, and see the angles.  It gave me a chance to fine tune my drawing skills and practice staying away from the details.

Stacked Pink

Cropping images in interesting angles, zooming in, close colors.   All things to consider.

Back of the Water Mill Cottage

How I would love to spend the summer in a little cottage in France!   This is a building still standing in France built for Marie Antoinette as part of a model village.

Difficult to paint a building where you can see so much detail and reduce it!

Let Them Eat Cupcakes!

It might be a strawberry or it might be a cotton candy cupcake - but it will be good!   Hopefully not too many turpentine fumes penetrated the icing.

I tinted this canvas with a neon blue and went to the opposite side of the wheel for the pink icing.   A little graphic, a little muddy, but a lot of fun!
