It is always nice, when finished with a painting, that you can eat the subject matter. Ham sandwiches, peaches, bananas and blueberries, M and M's...

I again used layering on this painting to ge the colors the intensity l wanted. I intentionly have only one red M and M so that it draws attention to it. I made the glare on the candy to look like there was an overhead light. I didn't darken the edges of the candy as much as the first M and M's painting as these candies are much flatter.

I like the composition and the depth provided by the shadow below the paint brush. And M and Ms don't have the M on both sides. Didn't know that.
