Transcript of Wayne Thiebaud

He was very interested in creating realistic paintings and he did this by using thick paint in exaggerated colors. When he painted cakes, for example, he applied the paint like a baker would spread frosting. The food in his paintings looks real enough to eat.
Thiebaud painted other subjects but it is the delicious looking foods that are his best known pieces.
