#53 'Terry's Chocolate Orange' 4x4"

This is my "Easter Egg' from my husband so I thought I'd paint it! - and of course eat it later :-)

Some tough areas to work out, simplifying the silver foil wrapper but still showing the complexity and tones of the crimples. I haven't painted chocolate before, to get the rich chocolaty colours but also show the segments. I especially liked doing the label and the rich yellow-orange of the wrapper. The writing on the label only needs to be suggested and not properly written as it still looks like writing when it's a squiggle!

My dog Matte has been really poorly after his op last week hence not much painting, he's now hopefully on the mend.

  1. I think this painting, so small, only 4x4, is brilliant.
