View Full Version : March 9 - Blue donut

03-09-2012, 09:25 PM

I have never seen or eaten a donut that has blue icing on it. Perhaps I'm missing out! :) Thanks for the great images Kay. I haven't posted in ages, but some the pieces inspired me, but I may not have time for more this weekend.

Here's my one hour version of the blue donut, in oils on stretched canvas, 5" x 7"

I wondered if anyone would do the blue donut...I had no idea it would be you!! Where have you been hiding??
Glad you're back...even if just for a cameo appearance.
Fun little piece of donut happiness - I too have never seen a blue donut IRL or in a painting!!!

Lovely donut. I've not seen one either. Good to see you back for a bit.

It looks gorgeous and scrumptious

Wonderful sugary stuff this painting is made from, Jeanette! I'd not ever seen one either and photographed this at the hospital where I work...a church group brought fancy donuts. But I did not eat it.

Hi Jeanette.
Soft oil color is wonderful.
I have never actually seen a blue donut icing too.

Good job!

This is lovely, so soft, such a great sense of atmosphere. Looks so classic.

You've made it look scrumptious - and I love your colour use.

I thought about it and decided I'd get that blue looking so horrendous I skipped the idea!

This looks yummy...very well painted.

I too, have not eaten a donut with blue icing. I don't know if I would. :wink2:

Great job, Jeanette!

Looks yummy Jeanette - better than the ref!

Love the way you muted the colors a bit. Very nice piece.

Sorry I'm slow in getting back. Life takes over sometimes!

Valri, thanks, I've been up to my ears in work and painting so kinda hunkered down doing my own thing and not around here much.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I've added an updated version. The only good thing about time changes in the spring is that I get daylight either end of the day to take decent photos of my art! This is the better version of the painting with more true to life colours.

:) I don't think Tim Horton's has ever had blue donuts, but there's always a first time!

03-12-2012, 10:52 AM
Thank you Angie :)

welcome back Jeannette, I have missed your drawings, I see you are painting in oils! I am sure there is an event the timmys will have blue donuts :o
nice job

03-12-2012, 02:58 PM
Nice job!

03-12-2012, 03:13 PM
Thanks Bonnie. Life has taken over at times with various obligations so I don't get back here much. I still fit my drawings though. :)

Thank you Bunny.

I've never seen one, either. For some reason, yours looks much more appetizing than the original, LOL!

Another beautiful doughnut and I smell mint too like Viv's. :)

I like it, blue or not.. ;) If it was here at my house.. It would be a plate and crumbs!! I to have been away from the WDE too.. Just missed it but no time to play. Glad to see your painting for fun.
