365 Days of Drawing Challenge - 345 to go...

What is this, you are wondering? A cherry wearing a toupee? Well, no. I tried to draw a chocolate bon bon candy with a cherry oozing centre. I got the cherry and the ooze bit down quickly but the chocolate part took me forever.

I guess it is all the flat mass shape with few reflections. I had to give up in the end. It was time for bed.

This is actually quite a large cherry bon bon. And I thought it was going to be really easy. NOT. I won't be drawing chocolate again for quite some time.

I did have some success during the day though at my studio painting lemons. Almost finished this still life. It is part of a new series of paintings I am doing, Abundance!

I know why it was so hard, Johanna... you wanted to EAT it ... not draw it!!

I can't wait to see your new series... Good for you... More to ship to your gallery!

mmm chocolate is a difficult one and impossible for most but maybe think of it as something OTHER than chocolate.That's what I do if I can't capture a thing .. a small cup for instance!really! ..paint a brown coloured tiny porcelain cup -that YOU can do...& then I reckon you'll have chocolate, a harder snappier chocolate.Not that I could get NEAR to painting what you've painted here! You probably think I am mad & you're probably right there!
