16/30 Days of Illustration – Strawberry Shortcake

I love painting cake but the downside is that I always want to eat it! Perhaps I should get some… you know, for reference! Today’s is a strawberry shortcake. I would like to buy or make these kind of cakes more often, but strawberries are expensive, so I only have it on special occasions. For now, this will have to do!

I think the strawberries look yummy, and I’m happy with how this turned out. At first I struggled with how to portray the light sponge of the cake, but keeping the colours bright and working with yellows, oranges and purples worked out nicely. I’m looking forward to the next time I can eat some strawberry shortcake!
