These little sweeties are going to be in the Valentine show at the James Library in Norwell, MA. I'll have 4 candy paintings and hopefully they'll make someone's sweet tooth smile!
I did this as a demo for my Saturday Class, which is fun in very many ways, and will be a mix of people who can commit to the 8 weeks, and those who can't and just drop in. We're going over the basics, which everybody can benefit from, right, from time to time?
Today was "Composition Day" and we talked about things to avoid, and had, I thought, a simple subject - candies. What I hadn't thought about was 1) my students are artists in other mediums and were thinking about values, edges, color, etc. etc.... ACK! I thought candies were just shapes.. but they also had cellophane, and at least 2 levels of highlights... Well, they did just great, even with all those other concerns! Happy, happy day.
