I loved being able to really go for the bright colours and the ability to work on one sweet at a time meant that I could stop and start without wondering how far I'd got.
I had done sweets before as a small piece on canvas, this time it's much bigger and on Pastelmat which made the blending much easier, although it still did take a lot of layers. The base layer was done using watercolour pencils which did help to give some depth to the colour.
