Day 4: drooling over macarons


Strawberry macarons with ice cream and crumble, 15x15cm, oil on canvas. [SOLD]

For my new series of work exploring Edinburgh’s food and drink culture, I’m starting small – little dishes and drinks, simple compositions that catch my eye. I have to admit, I’m strangely pleased with this wee oil sketch. For inspiration I used a photo of a dessert we had not too long ago at Field, a fabulous little restaurant in Edinburgh.

I think at some point I want to try painting pastries from life – that way I’ll have more freedom to arrange the composition myself. Plus what better motivation to finish a painting than knowing you get to have dessert afterwards? Hmmm, I could be on to something here.

It’s Art Every Day Month! Towards the end of the month, these new daily paintings will be available to purchase in my Etsy shop. Check out Leah’s blog for more information about Art Every Day Month, or follow the discussion on Twitter with the #aedm2014 hashtag.
