Taffy Spill


"Taffy Spill" 12" x 16" watercolor
Taffy always reminds me of my wife's Grandma who simply loved salt water taffy. This painting was inspired by Jelaine Faunce's "Color Therapy" series. I loved the whole idea and the paintings she came up with.
For my therapy, I decided to paint with a lot of blue, now blue isn't my favorite color but the combination of blue and green (not turquoise) is! I love it! I enjoyed painting glass again and since I hadn't painted colored glass before, I truly enjoyed the challenge.

You did a great job on this, Pablo. Hard to believe you haven't painted colored glass before; you did it so well.

Just wonderful. I love the colours and reflections. Wrapped candies are always such fun to draw and paint.

Colour therapy..a great idea.

You've done the glass perfectly!!! WOW - Can't wait to see your second effort at it!! The whole painting is super. I love the composition and the way the little beads on the neck of the jar lead you down into the taffy pieces. GREAT shadow, too. I love the exaggeration of blue and how you softened it and grayed it at the front. My grandmother gave us taffies and caramels wrapped up like that, so it brings a feeling of nostalgia for me, as well.
