Cupcake #52 **sold**

There is simply nothing shy about this little painting. The swirl of purple icing is surrounded by it's complementary color, which really makes this piece pop! Sometimes in order to figure out what the opposite color on the color wheel would be, you need to map it out. Start by drawing a small circle, place yellow at the top, purple at the bottom, and fill in the other colors along the edge. Clockwise this would read yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, green, and back to yellow again. Then you can find this purple would actually fall somewhere between purple and red, then shoot across the wheel to find it's complement...which winds up between yellow and green. Enjoy this cupcake, alone or in a group, it just sings!
