I know that I have a reputation for eating a lot of cake… but it is really scones that are my big weakness. I find cake too sweet and a few mouthfuls are all that I need. But I will admit that I LOVE sketching cake.
Today was my brother’s birthday and his three-year-old daughter was very excited about helping mummy make a cake. It was nice that I was able to go over for afternoon tea and wasn’t surprised that Auntie Liz was requested (by the wee girl) to sketch ‘Daddy’s cake that Sarah made’. I had to be quick!
Watercolour pencils were just so perfect for this situation – a little girl looking over my shoulder while I quickly drew the whole in colour. I added the ink lines (with my Hero M86) and a few paint splashes later (when it was safe).
