"Solitaires Pastry" by Jonathan Aller

"Solitaires Pastry"
7 x 5 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
Pastries are always a delight to paint, one reason is that I get to divulge into them when the paintings complete.  This pastry stood out to me for a couple reasons, first I really like the gestural cream folds and I also the subtle values.  It was a challenge to capture these subtle values especially between the folds in the cream.  The overall movement of the pastry was what captured me the most, hopefully I was able to portray that in this painting.

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