Cake Still Life with Cherry
(above) "Cake with Whipped Cream" Oil on 5"x7" board (Below) Work in Progress...)
I made this pound cake the other day, right from scratch! We made strawberry shortcake with it, but there was more cake than strawberries. So, I just ate it plain with whipped cream on top. So Good!
I've been wanting to paint something with frosting or whipped cream, so I set up a little still life with a peice of cake on a plate with a fork, but the whipped cream on top didn't last long! It melted,(it was the spray can kind), so I had to re do it, and take lots of pictures before painting. so I'd remember how the cream looked. I kept my cake nearby to paint from, because I can't get colors and shapes as well from looking at photos, or images on a screen.
