Cupcakes in a Row - 18x24 Oil Painting


18"x24" oil painting on stretched canvas
SOLD

Since I have a sweet tooth that's always "on", I got pretty excited when I saw the current challenge on DSFDF of a bunch of cupcakes in a row. It seemed like the perfect exercise to work on values, which is an area I've been trying to improve on. I thought this photo would look really nice as a HUGE painting, but since I'm working under time limits, 18"x24" was as far as I wanted to go.

I hope everyone had a great labor day weekend!

Kerri, this is a gorgeous painting. I wish I could see it up close. At that large size, I'm sure it's quite impressive.
