Happy Valentine's Day ...Chocolate Covered Strawberries

'Temptation' 8x8 pastel
After I painted these chocolate covered strawberries from an old photo I had I got a craving for the real thing. I am going to treat myself to a batch of them for Valentine's Day. Yum! I actually painted these as a demo for my Back to Basic's class. I wanted to show them how to paint chocolate without using a 'brown' pastel. I used purple, red, green and blue with a touch of dark orange. I love layering colors with pastels!
