American beetsPosted: March 20, 2014
You know spring is getting really close with the arrival of American produce from the southern states. Food is starting to look like it’s coming from a farm rather than cold storage and that makes me happy. Of course when I pick things up in the market more often than not I wonder if they would make a good painting rather than a good meal and I just couldn’t resist these beets today. Painted wet-in-wet on a quarter sheet of Fabriano soft press paper with bigger blob of Alizarin Crimson than I usually use, Hansa Yellow Light, Viridian Green, Permanent Blue and Cerulean Blue.
