CARROTS, 4X12, OIL


Back to my comfort zone, things to eat.  Hopefully I will be able to paint these items instead of eating them as I have been noticing a strange shrinking problem  with my clothing.  Or maybe I should be eating more of this and less chocolate, cakes, pasta etc.  Life is full of choices!

These carrots are luscious!! Where do you find them with the leaves? Did you grow them yourself?

How do you manage to make such lovely paintings out of such ordinary objects. I waste most of my time looking for subjects.

Crystal Cook said...

Those are beautiful Carol! I love em :)

just charming- I really like the value contrast here, but yet doesn't overwhelm the subject

Gorgeous painting love the background and the shadows also the format for these long beauties.

I really like the way you brought the orange of the carrots into the red zone. Love that blue shadow created by the leaves and the way it anchors everything. Perfect format!

Nice color....do I see a black gessoed board peeping through from underneath? I often like to paint on black too. It has a way of making your colors more vibrant.
