The garlic bundle is a study in contrasts — the heads pale, perfect, rounded, symmetrical and the stalks twisted and chaotic, dark and light. I didn’t realize until after my sketch was done that I painted them the same way — the stalks quickly and loosely throwing dark paint into light and the bulbs carefully and slowly with delicate washes and pale lines.

    Again, I love your simple still lifes and your ability to make mundane objects so much fun in watercolors.
