Farmer's Market Find
Image Size 6" x 6"
OilI found this little cabbage at the farmer's market on Saturday. It's only about 4" around and if a vegetable can be cute, that is how I would describe this one! I didn't have time to paint it until today so some of it's fresh glow was gone but it was still a fun subject. Since it was cloudy today, I couldn't take pictures of it in the sun. Instead, I set it up in the studio with a light. My usual light set-up fell and broke this morning so I had to get a new one. I got an LED light bulb thinking that it would give a realistic daylight color but it seemed much cooler to me. I think I will change that for the next set-up although the LED lights don't give off as much heat, which was nice.
This is a palette knife painting. I haven't done a palette knife painting since January and I really missed using that technique so I decided it was time to dig out the oil paints. Vegetables seem to look really good using the palette knife and I'll probably be doing some more in the near future.
