February art: kohlrabi and black spanish radish.

Vegetables are always a good idea. To sketch. The winter vegetables with their bland colours aren’t always that exciting to paint, but in that fact lies the challenge. It is easy to splash the reds and yellows in summer foods, but what with the black and beiges of winter root vegetables. for this exercise I chose kohlrabi, not a vegetable I particularly like eating and black Spanish radish.

  4. Love your choice of subjects! I’ve just met kohlrabi for the time this past week. Made it into a video because I was clueless before and had to share: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4QLufi_aAGE
