Vegetable Paintings

Have I said how much I LOVE to paint vedgetables?? Well, I do. I think they are lovely. Something so wonderful from the earth. I love the way they look, the smell and taste but mostly the gorgeous array of colors they come in.
To paint vedgetables and see the true color of a beet for example I spray them lightly with water. It brings out the color and also gives highlights more clearly.
When they are under the lamp they can change color so you must paint a bit more quickly. Under a spot they can cook at some point!! Stewed tomattoes!
Speaking of tomatoes, that is my still life subject for tomorrow. I will sketch that in this after noon.

See you then! XO
