Beets One

January Fruits and Veggies. Beets with watercolor and Staedtler permanent marker. This is a stand-up-and-use-a-big-brush painting, a round sized 20, for those of you that use watercolor, and no, it's not a Kolinsky, or even a sable brush. (Can you imagine the prices?) I was tryng for very loosey-goosey here, and strong values, plus the neat color of the beets themselves. Very fast painting, but I like it. The second one was also done standing up, going for more the shapes of the beets. I keep forgetting that everything is reversed here, when I talk about first and second versions. Done on Arches 140 lb watercolor paper. Thanks for looking.

Oh, beets are so very paintable! I don't particularly care to eat them, but painting them... And you've done a wonderful job with these!
