Once when I was visiting a friend she had these cupcakes and I took a photo knowing that one day it would be a subject I’d want to paint. They were so pretty against the polka dot placemats.

I played with colors today and tried to abstract this cupcake a bit. I reworked the bottom portion of the cupcake quite a bit until I was almost out of tooth on the paper. Thankfully my paper can carry many layers!
