How to Paint a Pancake

Painting, creating, sewing is a passion, one that I freely share and encourage in everyone.  It drives me nuts when someone says “I can’t”…the truth is, if you have a desire to do something, then do it and then YOU CAN!

My little video tutorials, I hope, gives you an avenue to try it. The whole idea behind these paintings is so that you may have a group of friends over and have a fun painting night: combine painting with something fun like an ice-cream party or chocolate tasting party or just a really nice excuse to get some good friends together and enjoy the evening with your beverage and/or food of choice. :) I have a painting planned for February that you can also do with your kids!

If you are a new follower or want to make sure you haven’t missed a painting, here is a listing of all the painting video tutorials.

  1. Chocolate Macaroon in a coffee cup
  2. A Cute Little Cupcake
  3. Ice Cream Sundae
  4. Last: Pancakes, thanks to a reader, Karen, who suggested this sweet treat. :)

What I find really neat, is that I’ve been at many parties throughout the world showing people how to create paintings without leaving my home and while I didn’t see it, I’m excited to know that it’s happening. :)  I thank all of you who have let me know.  You are the reason why I do this.  I hope that you do the same and share with me your paintings.

So at last, the final painting in the sweet series: How to Paint a Pancake!

Supplies I used (if you’ve painted the other paintings, you likely already have many of these colors):

  • Titanium White
  • Zinc Mixing White
  • Cadmium Yellow Medium Hue
  • Process Magenta
  • Yellow Ochre
  • Crimson
  • Burnt Sienna
  • Raw Umber
  • Prussian Blue
  • Cobalt Blue
  • 1″ Flat Brush
  • small pointed brush

    That pancake painting turned out beautifully!

    I would like to see a skunk or raccoon painting! (What can I say, I am a mom of boys.)

      Thank you! Skunk – how cute could that be! One of the other ladies suggested a horse – I think we’ll have an animal theme next. :) Thank you for the inspiration!

    The pancakes look almost good enough to eat. :) They turned out wonderfully!

    Well look at you. I didn’t know you had instructional videos. And of all things on painting my favorite subject – food. Looks like I am going to have break out some paint brushes!

    My mother was a very good painter before her stroke. I was always better with 3D stuff myself.

    Love your step by step video. I definitely could use some pointers on how to paint!

  • January 13, 2014, 8:20 pm

    My daughter would love to see this! I am going to send her the link.

  • January 13, 2014, 8:21 pm

    I’ve never seen your painting lessons before, but my kids and I definitely will be back to take some notes and attempt to do this! I’d personally love to be able to paint horses. Thanks for the swift kick in the butt.

      I’m so glad this gave you inspiration! And I love the horses idea, I’ll have to put one together – oh, for the Kentucky Derby in May! Yes, a Kentucky Derby painting party!!! Thank you for the inspiration!

    I love your video tutorials! I used to paint but am so out of practice that these would help since it’s been like 20 years.

    I love to paint but never have really jumped in with it. I will have watch all your videos so when I start I will actually create something that looks how I want it :)

    I cannot even draw a stick figure that looks right. But after watching the beginning of this video, I am tempted to give painting a try. I am heading back now to watch the rest of the video. Thanks for sharing these.

    I’ve never been able to draw or paint anything, but I’d give it a shot if I had the right equipment. A chocolate tasting/painting party sounds amazing!

    Ok, I’m totally blown away by this. You have some serious talent, and pancakes would be super hard (for me) to do. You make it all seem so much easier than it really is! Beautiful job.

  • January 31, 2014, 4:45 pm

    You’re seriously talented! As for me, I don’t know how to paint. However, I have always wanted to learn how to paint people.

  • February 2, 2014, 4:05 pm

    This would look so cute hanging on the wall in my kitchen! You are seriously talented.

      Hey Denise! I love that you are doing these! It gives me such validation to keep it up! And you all have given me great ideas for future works: animals, flowers/vases – what are you interested in? I thought about starting fruit series but I’d rather do something that you guys will actually do. :)

      Many thanks and I’d love to see what you’ve painted feel free to send my way!
