Two caramels done

4 x 4 inches, Polychromos on Stonehenge

This is an espresso caramel. The one in the last post is a ginger caramel - I had it wrong before. Hence the difference in colors. They're by the same company, and come in the same little package, but are different. (and they're both really yummy!)

I'm having as much fun with the shadows on these as I am with the candy itself. My original plan was to do some unwrapped, then just the wrappers - now I'm not sure. I may just keep going with the candies like this. I have some that are plain ordinary caramels in a different sort of wrapper - may do one of those next.

I will put these up for sale at some point. I would love to do one a day, and would, if I didn't have anything else to do!

Right now I'm going to go look at my yarn - the knitting bug has hit me again after a long hiatus. Have to keep my hands busy while I watch Project Runway so I don't feel quite so couch-potato-like.

You just do so well with the twist and folds of the wrapper and that shadow is wonderful.

Wonderful job Paula. You've life to an ordinary wrapper with the beautiful colors.
I know what you mean by the knitting bug. If it weren't for my commission I'm working on, I'd be trying to finish my son's afghan before he graduates from high school next year. It does feel good accomplishing something while you're watching t.v.. Happy knitting!!

Okay...I was in too much of a hurry to post! That will teach me. I meant to say You've ADDED life to an ordinary wrapper.

Beautifully drawn colourful caramels, Paula, and I love the shadows on these too! Very enjoyable to draw these I should think.

Looks like another kitty wants to move in.... you're right, she's irresistible!

And...I see you've got some new Lyra pencils - I like those too, nice fine points :)

I absolutely love these carmel paintings, both of them. The colours are so nuanced and alive, the composition and use of shadows is inspired. Brilliant, well done! I'm veyr much looking forward to following your blog and see in what other treats you come up with.
