EDM #169


This is my first response to a weekly challenge on EveryDayMatters, a drawing/painting/journaling group I joined recently. The motivation to hone my drawing skills, and even finally learn to "master" watercolors, has been very good for my lazy, good for nothing muse, who had just about abandoned me this winter.
As you can see, I had a battle with that plate over perspective. Unfortunately the plate won! I'll have to work on that....
So I'm off again on a new direction....or perhaps more to the point, on a quest to get back to areas of creativity I've let atrophy! I hope I'll have much more to share in the days to come........

I know what you mean about letting something atrophy, I am determined to stop that process too ;)

I'll have a piece of that cake with a cup of coffee, please!

I think you did great with this assignment- and made me want to take this teacher's drawing class.

Dear Mary if your cake piece could make me forget my pastry in my oven then you know it is a very tasty piece of cake. I could not leave your cake without commenting and I hope you will continue with your painting as you are so talented and do such fine work.

Frankly, I like the play of the realistic cake on the flat plate. It's a style I enjoy playing with. Instead of depicting a piece of cake on a plate as a photo would you made art in your own vision. It's great.
