A craving for Chocolate
Tenth in the series based on The Nutcracker ballet is Chocolate, which joins Coffee and Tea as another divertissement in Act II. It's performed by two dancers dressed in Spanish-style costumes, moving gracefully to very sprightly music.
My color scheme for this design is based on white, milk and dark chocolate. I've already painted the diamonds in the background to accentuate the crossed lines of the dancers' arms and legs.
I need to add some texture and sparkle to give their costumes the appropriate Spanish flair, so stay tuned!
