White Chocolate

When the bow is untied and the lid is lifted to release the aroma trapped inside since the factory, it really wants to get out.  A box of chocolates, freshly opened is a delight to the nose and eyes.  But in Studio B, only after they've been painted can the tongue enjoy them, too.  

White Chocolate was an exercise in color-mixing.  The sheer creamy white allows what's inside to show through, and it's usually dark. I mixed sepia, sap, burnt umber, cad red light, cad yellow and white to make white chocolate.  Who knew it would be so involved?

Thank you for lifting the lid today.
