Chocolate Cake by ArtbyCharlotte Chocolate Cake by ArtbyCharlotte
Part of my Art A-Level. I wanted it to be subtley patriotic for Great Britain, because of 2012 being the year of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, so I used red white and blue to suggest Britain's Union Flag.

Comments, favourites and watches as always are much appreciated!!!

I love the use of colours - you definitely got your subtle  patriotic-ness across! Also it looks down right delicious.

Ah thank you very much! :happybounce:  And for all of the favourites :D Did you find my work after that comment I left on that cake art post? 

Let me tell you something tragic about this painting. I painted it just before Easter when I gave up desserts for Lent!! Consequently I had to take loads of photos of it and paint it but I couldn't eat it, my brother and dad had to finish it! I never even got to taste it!

I really like this painting of yours. I think the composition is well balanced, and the colour combination works very well - the light blue and bright red highlight each other, while the pastel table and dark chocolate neutralize their vibrancy. Very well done.
Reaaaally want some cake right now, haha! :D

love this , those cherries positivly pop out from the screen , strange as it may seem i can almost sense the texture of the cream the crack of the chocolate shards and the sticky sweetness of those cherries. this is comfort food for the eyes, and definatly evokes a remberance of things past , my grans kitchen for sure. wonderous creation , lurvin the subtle shading on the bowl .

I don't know much about what to say here, other than I like it :)
Everything is well rendered while it still keeps that painterly look, which I actually like. I am not that big a fan of photorealism; while I like beautiful stuff, I prefer my paintings to look like paintings and my drawings like drawings. You could try to do a bit more details in the chocolate topping but it's up to you really, it's already yummy enough for me :D

Yeah I know I HATED doing the chocolate topping. I just got so bored with the same colour and i couldn't just take a break from it because I was in an exam painting it!!! Thankyou for your helpful comment! And for the watch and the second favourite! I meant to watch you but i forgot, will do that now!

yeah i suppose the red and white of the glace cherries and cream IS like the coca-cola colours... Funny you should say that actually because those adverts influenced me when doing this piece... [link]
