Rad, Red Radishes


Last week in my class, we painted the Sunflowers and it proved to be a bit overwhelming to complete in 3 hours, so last night I chose a more simple subject. There is something about those red, wet radishes in the market bin. The painting results were very good and on my demo, I experimented, using one of Scott Christensen's pre-mixed warm greys in the background mix of colors instead of the usual cool white. It did tie the hues together with some of the reds mixed into the mix.
