Chocolate Cake with Cherries
Had a sweet tooth the other night, and the only cake mix in the pantry was a chocolate, and being Dutch, yes, well...chocolate is a very good thing. Add some chocolate frosting, and there you go. Had to eat two pieces while drawing and painting this one. Ate the cherries from the back of the plate. I tried the Fabriano Artistico Cold Press, and didn't like it. It's not nearly as workable and forgiving as the Arches or my favorite, the Twinrocker magic paper. Has a nice little weave to it, I think I would like it for the watercolor pencils, especially the Swiss Caran D'Ache Supracolors. Anyway, in spite of the arguments with the paper and some problems with the Friskit, this one is not too bad, all in all. Thanks for looking.
