Every Day In May: Draw a cupcake (or six!)

May 20, 2015 | 2 Comments

I was disappointed that I didn’t find a cupcake to draw for yesterday’s EDiM challenge but as I driving through Neutral Bay today I couldn’t resist buying a box from ?My Little Cupcakes?. It was too hard to decide which one to buy (in order to draw) so a bought a box – meaning I have more to share with others!

It was a lot of fun to sketch although the sugar smell was hard to bear… so after this much was done,  I made a cup of tea and sampled one. You all know I am more of a scone girl, but for cupcakes these were special – although I couldn’t get through all icing on top!

You will notice that I made the colours stronger than they were in real life… I am not a pastel person so decided to convert the colours to suit me. And then I finished the sketch off with the logo and pink stripes from the bag. What a pretty sketch… although I do a lot of pretty teacups, this feels very girly to me!

Now… what was I suppose to draw for today’s EDiM challenge???


This is part of a daily sketching challenge during the month of May… it is not too late to join (just start with the challenge for today and then catch up if you can)
