Title: Sweet Brandi Print: Giclée on Canvas Size: 12″ x 16″ Print: N/A Buy Original – N/A
Sweet Brandi was a surprise Christmas present to my friend Rob Camp from his wife Nicole. She and daughter Lauren kept the secret well. They lost Brandi a while back, and losing a dog is a heart breaker. Hopefully this painting will warm all of their hearts.
I’ve always loved Milk Duds. It is nearly impossible for me to watch a movie without them. I know exactly what they taste like, and I thought I knew what they looked like; however, the close scrutiny required to paint them revealed not only that Milk Duds are not round, but that they are not uniform. They have dents and scuff marks that make each unique. That uniqueness made this painting a bit more difficult to get right. I wanted the effect to be as dimensional as I could muster, and the shadows made everything kind of pop. The Duds were intended to be the star of the painting, but the box got my attention, too. The box offered much more detail than the Milk Duds themselves.
These Milk Duds are yet another kind of shiny, and I hope that I’ve captured them well. The last thing I’d want to do is to disappoint another Milk Dud fan.
Ever since the first moment I saw this bottle, I knew I had to paint it. All the other bottles I’ve painted have been fairly easy by comparison, with a reflection here and there, but this one; it is one huge puzzle of reflections!
