Yellow Frosted


Oil on Cradled Hardboard. Approx 8"x8" SOLD

It was shear joy painting the frosting on this cupcake. I know the color on each monitor will vary but the background is more of a purple than blue...to go with the yellow.

My monitor shows the purple background - fabulous! The reflection in the plate is so very nice. The icing looks yummy with the yellow and touches of purple. The wrapper is perfect. Every painting I see of yours is always good!

Mike!

A joy to paint? I bet it was a joy to eat too!

Fantastic job on this!

The purple background is dulled down just enough without competing with the frosting yet is still very regal looking. (I want my walls painted that color now!)

The tiny details are wonderfully executed too. The turn of the frosting, the ridges in the cupcake liner, the cupcake's subtle reflection on the plate.

It's all good!
