I recently watched The Little Chocolatiers on TLC, about a couple who own and run a chocolate shop in Salt Lake City. I enjoyed watching them create a huge garden using just chocolate. Then I watched a contest for the world's best chocolatier. Chefs came from all countries to try to win the coveted award. And the things they created with chocolate were amazing! Much too elegant and pretty to even eat :)
So, I've been thinking about chocolate! I decided to paint something with that in mind, found reference photos from Google Images, and painted this for an online group. Using the same 3 colors on different surfaces, I used Lunar Earth, Quinacridone Gold and French Ultramarine Blue on Arches 140# rough paper and on Yupo plastic paper. You can see the difference in the look. I like them both but they are very different :)
