watercolor on FABRIANO ARTISTICO cold press paper
While making dinner for my family, I saved one leaf from a head of radicchio to begin the painting from life that evening. While it was still fresh I took a picture, I finished it from the photo reference later. I fell in love with the beautiful designs in the leaf and the contrast of intense purple against white. Something I have been trying to focus on is adding repeated layers to create stronger colors.
