Creative Tuesdays: Candy

The newest Creative Tuesdays theme is "candy." I had made a set of 16 abstracts, as previously introduced in my posts Creative Tuesdays: Monogram and Illustration Friday: Liquid.

At the time I made this abstract, I was thinking of the patterns and glossy textures you might see on a rainbow lollipop. Then, I added a varnish to give it that "juicy" look:

I'm looking forward to seeing all the candy and sweets inspired art.

Happy Illustrating!
