Instead of painting this bowl of popcorn in a photorealistic manner, I decided to have fun with it - capture the "essence" of popcorn; its colors, textures and funny shapes. Watercolor and water soluble pencil, 5 1/2" x 8". Wetting the paper first and letting the paint do its thing here was a simple exercise in loosening up, which can sometimes be a struggle for me.

Popcorn is my dogs' favorite treat, they followed me like a shadow from the time it popped to sit on my feet while I painted this, hoping I would share (which I did, of course).
