Candy Apples

I started this piece today on a 6x6" gessoboard. I've sold all of my candy apple pieces so I'll start a few more.

I am experimenting with making my own colored grounds. This ground is made from Golden Acrylic Ground for Pastel + water + red acrylic paint + orange acrylic paint + a little pumice powder. Don't ask for precise measurements, I mix like I cook ... I never measure! I like this ground because its very textured and takes the pencil quickly. I've chosen to begin by laying in the colorful highlights.

What fun to watch a candy apple piece proceed from start. I love these drawings of yours. Do you have a big sweet tooth?

Yes I have a very big sweet tooth! I'll make cookies or brownies and end up eating most of them myself!

It's nice to know someone else who has a sweet tooth also! Seriously. Mine is terrible. Oh well, there could be worse things. See you at the meeting!
