Vegetable DemoThese were a couple of very simple demonstrations in classes this week. We are always talking about composition, and I'm always stressing painting quickly and with a large brush. I wasn't trying for a good composition with the carrots (good thing 'cause I missed the mark if I was) but just trying to show how to paint a bunch of something without getting hung up on every individual part of it. Onions are always fun to do - the texture, color, and the hairy looking roots.
It's warm here today. As much as I dislike cleaning up the garden in the fall, I think I'll get myself out there and get a few things done. Everything is finished blooming, and it's 74 degrees! Okay - here I go. Where ever you are, is it still warm enough to work in your garden? Can you get in any last minute sketching in the garden?
