Garlic and RadishesSave Favorites
Enjoying a coffee in the kitchen, and this assortment of garnishes were on my chopping board. I am an animal artist, so doing a "still life" was alien for me. So I was brave and begun with my piece of charcoal, I began with the outline sketch, garlic and onions are great to paint as their skins are like painting a lizard - lots of textures, the radishes were different, but I enjoyed the challenge, and have a little more respect for skill life! Then pulled it together with Daniel Smith watercolors, I could taste the radishes. It was late at night so it was lite with artificial light above. This was a great way to relax and although it was a simple subject, it worked for me. Only a small painting 20x30 on Arches smooth 360 paper. "Garlic & Radishes" by Jan Lowe.
