Radish bouquet

It's wild out here with all the snow! But that's the case across many states today! So I'm posting a painting I did of some summer farmer's market produce... (11"x15") I love radishes and could eat a bunch just like that! It's also fun to try all the different combos of violets, purples, pinks and reds in my palette!

I love this painting, I love radishes too! They too are a favorite subject of mine, although I like to eat them too! Your work is beautiful, the colors and softness. Beautiful. Take care,Diana

Rich rolors and nice edge control.

What a great way to find color in winter! Wish I had taken my camera into the wonderful produce market in south Florida this afternoon! Maybe I'll go back. Thanks for all your ideas and inspirations

Bellissime gradazioni di colori vivaci e 'riscaldanti'. Fanno proprio bene in questo freddo inverno. Ciao. Luigi.

I am also a big fan of radishes - Maybe I was a rabbit in a previous life!
