Illustration Friday - 'Cake'

IF this week has the theme 'Cake'. When I was in my final year of uni I used rocks as my subject matter (yes, rocks). I tried to come from the angle of the double meaning with this painting entitled 'Rock Cakes'. This is 60cm x 40cm, oil on canvas. Each 'cake' on the cake stand is actually a rock so here it is:


And here's one shot of the original setup I used for reference:

A wonderful oil. I had to look closely to tell if it were an oil or a photo; wonderful job.

I love the moodiness the colors & nature of oils brings to this. I think the rich colors in the topic "Cake" really bring a new spin to it. I like the rock's too. Just odd enough to make me go, "Hmmmm." Very nice.

Amazing realism, especially the silver. And I like that you didn't take the theme this week too literally.
