Tipping Point, 6x6 Inch Original Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald


Just when you thought the Donut Wars were over.....  You can tell I kind of had to 'hug' the top donut to create the little tongue of jelly on these - I hate overstuffed donuts, but geez!  I thought you might like to see the step by step...

A shot of the 'models'.. I took this at the very beginning.  As I painting the jelly continued to ooze...

 I chose to exaggerate the tilt of the top donut.
More of the most 'vulnerable' colors..
Then some darks and modeling...
And....the dessert... the jelly
Foreground and background... then the sugar!
I'll be Susan Roden thought she was safe.... NOT! 
Pin It


  1. Yowza - the Donut War returns!

    Here everyone thought they were safe from gooey, sticky jelly and frosting. This is such a good little sticky mess Kelley. Dunkin Donuts?

    Well be prepared for I'm going to be flinging some frosting back to you on Monday.

    Ta-dum...the Cold War is over.

  2. This one is especially wonderful. So yummy, and gooey and the jelly is glowing! So tempting first thing in the morning. Glad you are back doing these gems. Hear you will get to see our Amy soon. Have fun!!!

  3. Thanks so much for the little photo history. It makes it seem like it took you five minutes to paint these little gems. I like how you chose to slant the top donut more.

  4. What a way to start a Sunday morning, now I feel the need to drive to DD and purchase a 1/2 dozen jelly donuts and eat each and every one of them! Love these Kelley and love the tutorial, thank you, thank you thankyou.

  5. Thanks Kelley. I love seeing your process

  7. When will the war be over!
