Daddy´s girl and fresh vegetables

This one was done for the WDE for wwet canvas I enjoyed painting it and trying to capture the light and shapes of shadow, it is also done without a preliminary sketch

These radishes are  another twenty minutes warm up challenge ... actually it took less than twenty minutes because it was done in a loose style ... It was fresh and,  just bought from the vegetable market, and was begging to be painted


  1. Those are both beautiful paintings! There is so much freshness. And I am very impressed that you painted them directly without a sketch!

  2. I remember the portrait! Lovely job on the radishes. I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks things call me to be painted!

  3. Thank you Crystal I do try hard to shallenge myself to paint without sketching , I focus carefully on the shapes that shadows form and of course negative shapes that prserve the light...

    Thank you Joan Yes I quite agree with you, sometimes very ordinary things appeal to the artist´s eye...
