LE: Let Them Eat Cake
Wayne Thiebaud's Cakes painting was used to teach students how to draw three-dimensional cylinders. They first correctly guessed that the repetition of cakes was supposed to be a commentary on popular culture. Then we sketched out a single cake and made it look round and voluminous by adding shading on the cake and table. For the final, they designed a delicious cake they would sell at their own bakery and colored it in oil pastel. Bon appetite!
