"Happy Birthday Donut" 6"x8" oil painting by Terry Romero Paul, winning image of the Sidecar Doughnuts and Coffee contest

I am the winner of the "Happy Birthday Donut" contest from Sidecar Doughnuts and Coffee! The donut shop was celebrating it's 4th birthday and challenged their followers on Instagram to submit images to win a $100 gift card! I was the only one that painted an image. It paid off and now I will have many, many subjects for future paintings. Ha! 

Sidecar Dougnuts are located in Santa Monica, CA and Costa Mesa, CA.

One Two, Three and then you have, "One Short of A Dozen"!

Here is an example of my process when I am painting.  The first is a loose sketch on a white canvas.  I am drawing with a thin brush with thinned burnt sienna paint. Sometimes I tint the canvas but here I wanted to use the white.  Next is a block in of the shapes and shadows. You see I have my darkest darks.   The third shows more definition and the last, I bring on the yummy details and the highlights.  "One Short Of A Dozen" 24'x24" oil painting on canvas.
