Here is my latest cupcake. I know, I am a little obsessed with painting cupcakes, but I am enjoying the challenges of a similar subject matter with different attempts and mediums. For this 5"x5" cupcake, I painted it on textured clayboard with watercolors. I am loving this clayboard (I guess it has been renamed to aquabord.) Anyway, it is a really cool product that I am really enjoying. I will need to pick some more up next time I am at the Art Store.
I do think this looks a little flat, next time I need to work on giving the cake a little more depth. Interestingly enough, while there isn't depth in the cake itself, there is apparently depth in the strokes, because Kevin literally thought I had done this painting with a fuller bodied paint than watercolor.
