Hello Cupcake

Pin It
Earlier this week I posted pictures of some whimsical watercolors that I recently painted.
Keeping with the "whimsical" theme, I thought I'd share another of my paintings...
This one is done using acrylic paint.
I achieved the textured background by dipping a wet paper towel in 3 colors and dabbing. I covered the entire canvas with the texture, painted the cupcake, and then added a light wash over the texture at the bottom.
Just like in my watercolors, I added some loose outlines with a fine tip Sharpie.
Go HERE to see my whimsical watercolors.
