Carmel Dove Chocolate®
Viola! A portrait of my favorite camping chocolate!
Whenever I stay with Kelsey, we bring Dove® chocolates and Arbor Mist® wine. It's a tradition her family started and has become the preferred delicacies whilst watching outdoor concerts.
As of late, caramel has become my favorite and I wanted something to use my new metallic gold oil paints on. I even "borrowed" gold leaf from Megan (I definitely disregarded the instructions).
Originally, I was aiming for a realistic representation. I soon realized that the metallic paint doesn't allow that. If it does, I have no idea how. So at the end, I scrapped that original plan and went a little trigger happy with gold and red.
I've come to like the outcome, even if there were many moments where I wanted to take a knife to it.
