Cup O' Comfort-Hot Chocolate

Close ups

Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. The hostess was Jean, and she provided great reference photos.

The day here is dreary, very cool, and wet, so the hot chocolate seemed to be a perfect fit.

This is oil on a 6x6 canvas panel over black gesso. As a final step, to make the gesso truly black in the painting, I added a thinned Prussian blue on top of the exposed gesso in the background.

Matthew 9:12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.


  1. great job---the spoon especially is so good! It makes me want a hot chocolate for sure :)

  2. While not a big drinker, you've got me craving hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps! That whip cream looks like I could scoop it right off my screen. I also think that spoon is phenomenal, Dean. How do you do it???!!!

  3. Et bien voilà! c'est fichu, mon régime adieu... A cause de vous ou grâce à vous me voilà, rêvant d'une délicieuse tasse de chocolat...
    Les couleurs que vous avez employées sont de bon goût... j'ai envie de mettre mes mains et lover votre tasse... c'est souvent en moi, un des plaisirs que j'ai lorsque j'ai une tasse devant moi.
    Sans y avoir goûté, j'ai passé un moment exquis en admirant votre travail... Nous avons, en quelque sorte partagé un petit moment ensemble...
    Bisous et bravo pour ce si beau travail.

  4. Dean, you're incredible! This is so life like..I can almost smell it.! Beautiful painting!!

  5. Thank you Celeste, Sherry, Martine, and Hilda! I truly appreciate your kind and supportive comments!

  6. Mmmm! Creamy and delicious!
