This is a preparatory sketch for a series of paintings that I am doing for a Valentines day show that I will be participating in. I plan on having 3-4 slightly larger than usual pieces in it and I wanted to go with a theme of sorts. For some reason I got this doughnut painting bug and made the decision that this was the theme. Problem was, I never had painted a doughnut before . . . ate a whole bunch but never painted them. So I am doing a few of these little guys to get me familiar with the ins and outs as far as color and composing them go. Here's a couple of my fav's.
