Tribute painting, as a thank you remembrance to Mr. Wayne Thiebaud. American artist born November 15, 1920. Died December 25, 2021. I didn’t feel up to sketching a portrait, so I sketched this cupcake—because he helped the world look at baked goods and so much more in a wonderfully unique and inspiring way.
Spend some time looking at Thiebaud’s work on-line, or if you’re near a museum that has his works (and it’s safe to go there because of Covid controls), or in a book if you have some.
See what really looking at something looks like.
The book shown at the end of that video is excellent and I highly recommend it.
