DSDF- Cupcake

Filed under: cupcake, dsdf, watercolor and ink, watercolor painting — laurenmaurerartworks @ 2:15 pm

Here is my latest DSDF submission, a cupcake! This came out a little greyer maybe than I would have liked, but overall I love the look of the pen with the super loose watercolors.


  1. You know, i don't mind the grey…kinda what frosting looks like when it gets all mixed up too! I love this. Very cute. And the hostas too.

  11. I've always loved the look of watercolor and ink. Your handling of the ink is perfectly expressive, and the greyness works really well too.
