Candy Pop! – Day 339

pez candy 1 So, I’ve wanted to just do the Pez candy and here’s my first attempt. It’s not the best photo (with the reflection of the varnish) but i love this piece. I had the intention of a transfer, and the coloring was determined by the flavor of the candy. This is orange candy so the watercolor wash was orange (with a hint of yellow and black). Then looking at it, it screamed vintage advertising, and i did a complimentary abstract outline. I’ve seen works like this where they have abstract outlines that add such energy, and i feel this has it. The blue is so “in your face” and makes the deaden oranges react with each other. I love the simplicity of this, and have many more ideas now!
