Paintings by Wayne Thiebaud

I’m extremely fond of Wayne Thiebaud. I was first introduced to his work in 2008, in my first year drawing class at university. I was 17 years old and absolutely delighted by the slides my professor showed our class. Thiebaud’s paintings are consistently exquisite. They’re rich in colour and texture, the painterly quality itself is delectable, never mind the subject matter. I am especially amused by how he goes about creating shadow in all of his work. These are a few examples of my favourite pieces of his; from 1960’s on.
