Raven Cake and Landscape Cake

Raven Cake and Landscape Cake

Both of these cakes are derivatives of my charcoal drawing themes and take imagery directly from my frequent use of these subjects. Flat black and white paint line design is a powerful element for movement and contrast. Tiffany blue was added to create a celebratory color to the Birthday theme for STL250.  © 2014 Katherine Nelson
