I think you've forgot the milk :D this is so fun to look at. I love painting chocolate chip cookies, they're so easy to paint. Yours looks so real. Awesome job!

Thank you, Evart, I tried to make them look as real as possible. I did a lot of opacity in this one, and lots of browns and blacks.

I really found myself wanted to grab those cookies from your painting. It looks so real. I like how you created the texture on the plate and gives me a combination of an optical illusion and reality feel. Very great design and well painted cookies. :)

justjean, thank you! I was hoping people would find them real looking. I didn't want to go basic, but I found that it was, and it had great detail them.

Sandra, thanks for the encouragement! :D

Katie, now there's an idea! But here in the US, especially in Idaho, at this time of the year, the best thing for me is Hot Chocolate. I am glad to say that you may have a cookie. :) Thank you much for your reply.

Flyashy, the green and red do grab the attention, but then you kind of find your way to the cookies. Thanks!

Sabena, I'm glad you like this painting! Thanks for your input! :o

Wow lolalot, Great image. Did you take a chunk outa that cookie?

02-12-2010, 09:51 AM
:D I'm afraid this is a family recipie, but I will tell you how to make your cookies look perfected. Just sprinkle some brown sugar on top that will give it its glaze look. Thank you!

Ha! I wish I did, but it was my mom who did. She tends to snitch some cookies from behind my back. So, I may have to make a new batch before Santa comes...:) Thanks!
