The composition of this next one would probably work better if it were cut down to a 6x6" panel.

This painting of M&Ms was painted on a canvas made of hemp, which has a pretty nice texture, much like linen. I primed it with acrylic gesso, then rubbed some burnt sienna acrylic onto the canvas to tone the surface and keep the gesso from soaking up the paint too much. Painting candy on a canvas made of hemp really opens me up for jokes about "the munchies" so I'll let you take a moment now to make one.

The next model came from a bakery near my office. They make incredible kolaches and cinnamon rolls, and I struggled as I tried to decide to eat it, or paint it first.
