"Creme Brulee" By Jonathan Aller

"Creme Brulee"
5 x 7 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
I wanted to stay on the subject of painting pastries and desserts.  Other than trying to paint there textures I do love eating them when I'm done, it's a guilty pleasure but worth every bite.  What attracted me to paint this dessert was its subtle color shifts in the brulee, I've been wanting to capture more subtle values and how to render them.  The deep reds that are in the raspberries where also an incentive to paint, I did miss painting them especially after painting golden raspberries.  What I try to achieve when I paint is painting light and texture on the subject, to me thats fun part of painting.  

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