Since I’m in the spirit of adventure lately, I decided to try a little doodlewash without my trusty ink pens. I did a quick pencil contour sketch and then dove right in with watercolor for this little answer to the “glazed” prompt for today. My sweet tooth immediately made me think of glazed donuts and little else so this was pretty much inevitable. Now, I’m just wishing I actually had an actual glazed donut sitting in front of me. Seriously, I can’t think of much else and I’m wondering if the donut shop nearby is still open. There’s something sort of amazing about a glazed donut. As a kid, I liked a bit of frosting or sprinkles, but as an adult, I’m rather enamored with the simplicity of this variety. It’s still full of too many calories to count, but it’s so incredibly worth it! But, I’ll show some restraint, like I did for today’s sketch. Just a few colors and quick washes to get the idea across. A rather appropriate approach to something that is just an illustration of a dream.
Well… Apparently WordPress ate my words that got posted and I’m not sure what I rambled on about in the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs and was only able to salvage the first paragraph from the social posts. Apologies for this little glitch, but please enjoy the donut!
