JUST THE TWO OF US x 2 - WHAT??

Here's where the peeps stand in this one - the same peeps x 2 :)



This one is finished.  I like the green but am not crazy about the Lunar Black behind them - I think the bg should be smoothe to offset the texture on the peeps - and I'll make sure I do that with the next one. 

This one is on 140# Arches cold press paper, 9" x 11"







This one is not finished (obviously).  It's on Twinrocker 140# cold press paper, 7" x 7"

It has a pale pale Verditer Blue wash all around that you can't see - it just looks white here.  I will leave that as the background but will think about another color for the foreground and shadows. 

You can really see the texture in this one.

It is fun with the subject and colors, Mimi :)

Love the peeps. I hate marshmallows but must eat a few peeps every Easter. (And, once the package is open, they have to be eaten.)

Thanks, Katherine! They are certainly in all the stores right now - bring a few home and try it yourself, it's fun!

Thanks, Hallie :) I know what you mean about them but when they are a bit dried out, they are pretty good as long as you don't eat more than 1 or 2! ha ha
