Up on Etsy - Animal Crackers - Original Acrylic Painting - With Behind the Scenes Photos

photorealistic painting of a box of animal crackers by kim testone
"Animal Crackers," acrylic on panel, 8" x 10".

I used a contemporary box of animal crackers as a model for the piece. There were so many super-intricate details, as the painting is just slightly larger than life size. In truth, the illustrations used on the box were really lovely, and something I'd never really noticed before. 

I'm including some behind-the-scenes photos below. Thanks for looking!
I began to refine my details with white, cleaning up any edges where I went a little overboard with my yellow.
