6" by 6" oil on masonite.
I wanted to paint the air around the candy with this one. To do this, I used a limited palette and thinner paint than usual. Had fun with the brushwork. When looking at the real peppermint set-up, it seemed to float since it was held up by the wrapper. I would like for that to have showed up more in the painting. Thankfully, I'm getting a sense of when continuing won't help on these little ones though, so I stopped.
