#314 Vanilla Bean Cupcake


I've lately been playing around with this method of painting where I lay down a drawing, fix it, wipe a wash of burnt umber over the whole thing, pull out the lights and build the painting from there, leaving the background with the burnt umber wash. I would tell you that I bought this cupcake specifically "for the still life" but we are all lovers of art and lies (other than the ones painted on panels and canvas) do not become us.

  2. I like the dynamism of the burnt umber wash against the quiet of the cupcake. The cupcake is waiting for the party.
