12"x12", oil on canvas.Radishes in a bowl of water, demo for oil painting.
Below: thumbnail sketches mapping the overall shape and the value pattern, respectively, full size map/sketch, and a few stages.
How it came to be: Radishes were the subject of Thursday still life painting (this week and last). I put them in a clear bowl of water to keep them fresh before class. The first students to arrive, the watercolor students whose radishes, incidentally, were not displayed in water, clamored for the oil painting subject be left as is, in the bowl of water. The oil painters did not bat an eyelash, bless their courage and enthusiasm, not beginners any more!
