Kisses - update II



I'm pushing on slowly with more layers for these candy wrappers.  I haven't drawn or painted paper in some time and forgot how complex it can become in terms of folds and shading.  Its a good exercise in concentration!  I've barely touched the third piece on the left, but will get there.  For some unknown reason I started on the right and worked left instead of the other way around.  Either way it does work, I just need to to be more careful not to damage the work already done.




I've even pulled off some sketches during my bedtime ritual of drawing.  I tried one wrapper from memory, one from a piece of candy sitting on top of my sketchbook.  The other, a piece of unwrapped candy.  Sorry Purity, but your molasses candy doesn't taste like molasses...

I enjoy seeing the progress and learning from you’re creatively posted blog.

Thanks Sue. The layers are becoming tricky, knowing whether to be tight or loose with them.

Thanks for your kind words Pat.

Good excuse to stop off at the sweet shop Jennifer! See? Valid research! :)

Cate, the thought had crossed my mind. I'll get fat(ter) doing a series in that though!
