Painting Treats is a Trap!

My Watercolor professor in college gave an assignment to paint desserts from a local bakery.   His rationale was that we would get so tempted to eat the treats that we would paint quickly and end up with a fluid (rather than contrived) watercolor.   Painting on canvas is different.  The last time I tried painting candy I worked on two 36 x 36 canvases at the same time -- and couldn't stop thinking of chocolate.   I was constantly hungry.

This small sketch with quick-drying acrylic gouache took me a few minutes and I didn't reach for a treat afterwards.

Next canvas painting:  Still Life with Broccoli.
