'Wedding Cake' is the first painting from my new 'cake' series. In this series I am using cake a vehicle for exploring textures and light. Cake is an incredibly nostalgic food and is the centre piece of any birthday or special occasion. In this series I wanted to elevate the humble cake and immortalise its beauty forever! This painting is inspired by a friend’s gorgeous wedding cake made by Lily Vanilla Bakery in London - which captivated my imagination. I have used a combination of palette knives and brushes to capture the textural icing detail in oils. The dashed background is inspired by the Impressionists and works to create movement in the painting. The shadows are inspired by American Artist, Wayne Thiebaud who also painted cakes and food. The colours are grounded in colour theory and the ochre and red were chosen to enhance the pastel blue of the cake. The overall image is striking and delicious!
