Hi friends! Today we are going to paint some yummy Christmas cupcakes!

I thought about speeding this video up but you always tell me keep the painting tutorials in real time so I took your advice, I hope you find it useful:) Here is a pattern you can trace if you don’t want to draw it freehand.

Paint along with me in this video tutorial. Feel free to take a break anytime you need too, that’s the great thing about a video class, you can paint at your own pace!

  4. I’m SO glad you painted this! I always wanted to know how to paint food, especially bread and cake. I never seem to get the texture right and probably gave up too soon. As usually, your painting looks better than the picture!
    I’d like to watch you painting a mug with steaming hot chocolate (or coffee 😉 ). I know it might seem kitschig, but this time of the year I feel like painting still lives like that. I know I should mix the gray color for steam and that I only get one single chance to paint the steam to keep it airy but I somehow think there’s more to it ….
    I also love the pine cone!
