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.

  1. Awesome, looks so real. Thanks for showing your work in progress. I really like when an artist does that. It helps us fledglings learn so much. :)

  2. Oh, so good and delicious.
    Beautiful ;)

  5. Great cake texture and the whipped cream is perfect! Looks yummy enough to eat.

  6. I am visiting here for the first time.. loved what I saw! This is an amazing still life you have created.. the spongy texture of the cake looks so real, the metal shine of the fork is just perfect! Not to forget the juicy cherry!
