Fistful of Kohlrabi
I am a bit all over the place these last few days...back in the garden with this one. Kohlrabi is such an interesting looking player in the food group. I love the deep purple color of this one. The challenge for me on this painting was finding the balance between enough detail and keeping it loose. I also didn't find it easy to come up with the right colors for the hand and the background, even though I paint a lot of flesh. When I am conscience of the "rules" I always struggle. It really works better for me to not let my brain get in the way! Do you feel like that?
