Golden Beets 12"x16" oil on linen panel
On Thursday my youngest needed a purple cast on her wrist...figure skating injury. After I was sure all was well, I raced to my workshop. I was excited to see gorgeous beets... golden orange no less. The greens were lush and they were just calling to be painted. I jumped in to it and really lost myself in the process.
I looked into the shadows like Michael had taught me and saw gorgeous blues on the plate, so I rubbed some blue onto the panel. This instructor does not allow any type of thinner or medium, so getting the panel toned evenly wasn't that easy. I began building on top of that, and eventually pushed the lights in the front beet and on the front edge of the platter.
I completed this in 2.5 hrs and am quite pleased with the results.
