"Petite Pastry"

"Petite Pastry"
7 x 5 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
Hi everyone today has been raining and getting colder as well, basically a perfect day to stay in and paint.  Its been fun doing larger paintings and switching to these smaller alla prima paintings.  I saw this petite pastry at the grocery store and it reminded me of the pastry I painted a while ago but much smaller, hence the name "petite".  Ofcourse I bought it and the good news was they gave me two for one!  These pastries have been so much fun to paint, learning how to render different textures and bring out the intense colors that are hidden within.  A good treat to a rainy day. 

You can see the making of this painting on my blog:
