Dreaming of Cake

Wayne Thiebaud is an artist after my own heart.  He is a pop artist, that is short for popular culture artist, and he found his subject in a bakery window.

He enjoyed creating texture through line and patterns through shapes.  He also tried to focus on the shadows.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Can you tell just by looking at his paintings where the sun is located?

He painted things other than desserts, but I think they are some of his best.  You can research Wayne Thiebaud and find other paintings that you might like.
 
But if you had to paint popular culture items, like dessert, what would you paint?

  1. This painting was very good. It inspired me to draw desserts. Not only did it look good but it made me want to go and grab an icecream cone. This painting almost looks like you could grab a icecream cone right from the picture. This painting rocks!

  2. I like this kind of art. it looks realistic but at the same time you can tell someone drew it. you can tell where the sun is by the shadows and alot of art lacks that. This kind of art is unique and simple. i really like it.

  12. This is really impressive art and looks like it would be fun to try and draw. He did a very good job of drawing them and it looks like it would take lots of time and patience. I want to try it sometime.

  14. Just looking at this makes me crave something sweet. I really like his artwork. If I were to create a pop culture piece of art I think I would paint something like a video game or electronic, since most people are attached to their electronics.

  15. This is really impressive how he made this. Drawing cakes seems really hard to do. It would be really fun to do this sometime to.

  16. I don't understand how the last one has anything to do with cake. They all look very nice. Once again I wouldn't have the ability to be able to do one of these.
