A gang of pink marshmallow Easter Peeps.
There’s a school of thought that color harmony alone can give you any light effect you need in a painting. The Impressionists and yadda yadda.
I don’t ascribe to that school; instead I bought a special color of paint that I thought would go to the perfect hot pink for these Peeps. Of course I don’t want to drop $15 on the wrong color so I was on pins and needles until I got the tube home.
And I was RIGHT!!
Holbein Geranium Lake, if you feel a need, as I invariably do, to paint some pink peeps of your own.
Another fallen peep.
Everyone’s crazy about Anders Zorn right now and yes, this is the Zorn palette, only I switched in more Cadmiums- which I think he did too. But I’ve read so many contradictory things about his work that I have no way to know for sure.
Peeps take the stage.
Although my taste buds belong to Cadbury candy eggs, my painting fingers belong to Peeps. I love painting these things.
Marshmallow Easter Peeps Painting
Last year I painted the classic pink chicken Peeps and this year I went for the bunny rabbit Peeps. Easter season is still young, so maybe I’ll go back for another color.
People love Easter Peeps or they hate them – I love the way they look.
