Stacked Jelly

Kelly and Susan are usually slamming each other with jelly on Donut Mondays but today Kelley did a beautiful rainbow sprinkle number while Susan painted a fabulous chocolate frosted on a nifty patterned plate. I just ripped a jelly in half and stacked one piece on top of the other and then stuck a munchkin in there just for fun. I have a plethora of reds and was able to get these glorious glowing tones in my jelly using Thalo Red Rose, Quinacridone Red and Quinacridone Magenta mixed with Cad Yellow Med for that hot orange. I like to sneak up on the donut girls, unexpectedly. Guerrilla Donut Wars, you might say.

The highlights on the red makes it ooze right out of the doughnut. Delicious.

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

K.E.L.L.E.Y! I know you KNOW how to spell my name! And you are, indeed, the Queen of Reds. Any Red. Anyone ever need to know how to 'concoct' it - just ask Mary!!! She has reds I've never heard of, and it always comes out perfectly *right* in her paintings! And she is generous, and will share...
Cheers!
