Radishes


Oil on Canvas 28"x22"
I like any excuse to paint red, and since I don't see any radish paintings, I thought that I would try one. Those little roots sort of look comical, yet they are so important for the growth of the plant. When the plants are store bought, the leaves are a mess of green. It was a challenge to somehow make them work..I think I got it more or less. I find green leaves a real problem to paint..I spend hours looking for a green that works..it is either too green or not green enough.
Anyway, this is my take on radishes.

Beautiful John, I like where you are going with the edges and backgrounds.
