I really enjoyed posting the step by step thing for the last cupcake, so I thought I'd try it again. This, of course, is the part where it's so vauge you can't tell anything but that it's in more of less the right place...
And here is where you consider wiping it because it doesn't look how you wanted it to at all!
And then things start improving. You know, I don't even like to eat icing? It sure it fun to paint, though. And you notice all kinds of fascinating things about the surface of the cake when you start painting it, too!
I am an artist living and working in Hillsborough, North Carolina, and have been maintaining this blog as a daily painting project since January 1, 2008. Each of the daily paintings and studies posted here is available on Etsy. My larger and more involved works can be rented from me or purchased through Etsy, from the Broomfields Gallery in West Jefferson, North Carolina, from Bull City Art and Frame in Durham, North Carolina, or from me directly by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
