When this cupcake became the latest challenge of DSFDF, http://differentstrokesfromdifferentfolks.blogspot.com/,%20I I decided it would be the perfect companion for the "truffle" I had rendered earlier. I think next could come a slice or slices of cherry pie, or apple, or blueberry? Wonder if this is how elementary Wayne Thiebaud started? Did you notice in the video that WT is a slender man, AND he "digests" all those desserts he creates (Obvious, not literally).
Technique Tip: To make straight lines, use a T-square (they come in all sizes-from easy to handle convenient 12" small for small drawings to gigantic 60" for carpenter & huge works of art, and so on). First, line up the edge of the watercolor paper to edge of board (I use a see-thru acrylic used in picture frames), tape into position, then all lines drawn will be square with each other and the edges of w/c. I even line up the tape so my 1/4" white edge is also even. To make straight edges, use a good masking tape along w/T-square. I use "DUCK" red-see inside the roll. (Best there is-holds tight-easy removal w/o tearing if you pull the tape away from painting. Actually, I use this tape for taping w/c paper down, too.) Each of the squares taped on all 4 sides was done separately AND, not near adjacent still-damp ones.
