Cupcake #109 **sold**

A simple little vanilla cupcake with sprinkles. When we think vanilla we think white, or cream, maybe with a hint of yellow. But take a look at the color peeking out from this cupcake. If we were talking about additive color theory, such as what happens when different colored lights are used, white is considered a mixture of all the primaries. Theatre lighting is where you would use additive color theory. But on canvas, adding color to whites gives them life! Usually this is achieved by allowing reflected colors to show through, like Scott did here, the deep burgundy background is reflected in the icing. The whole thing is just warm and inviting, a cupcake like your grandma would have made! Enjoy!
