    I agree – the chocolate aroma is making my mouth water! Fabulous work!

  • Thanks Enivea, much appreciated…and have to admit I consumed parts of my subject while I was doing this :))

    Hmmm, I wonder what chocolate dipped rose petals taste like? Well done! Sandy

  • Lol, I’m getting silly images of chocolate coated rose petals scattered over a romantically candlelit bed…hehehe. Sounds nice in theory, but probably just a tad sticky…and don’t ask me to do the washing later! :))))) Thanks for the giggles Sandy :)

  • Thanks so much Heloisa, always appreciate your support.
    For some reason I’ve never had a look through your gallery until today (RB does tend to lead you astray far toooo much…lol), so it was a real surprise…and joy…to wander through your work. You’d have to be very close to the best digital painter I’ve seen here…or anywhere else. The realism of your art is almost unbelievable. So life like, the details rendered so brilliantly, but the most important thing is that you don’t forget how significant a role composition plays in a painting’s success.
    I know there are a lot of people out there who consider digital painting as less than worthy, but if they could see you work I’m sure there’d be many who would change their minds.
    Wonderful stuff!! :)
