Rockin' Radishes

Oh these were fun to paint.  I am still gleaning a great deal of information from my Putnam DVD and this prompted me to work on this painting quickly and decisively.  I sometimes get lost in the desire to paint every little thing and so my quest is to leave a little bit more to the imagination of the viewer.  I felt that this painting was successful in that area.  I did a thumbnail sketch which is something that is stressed in her book and DVD.  It just helps to get a desirable Notan down before painting.  I feel that I am learning a lot even if I walk backwards sometimes.  (As in yesterday's painting)

Bonjour chère amie,

Ces petits radis ronds me font fondre de plaisir !... J'adore ! Au printemps j'en ai toujours à l'atelier et j'aime les croquer tout en peignant !

Très belles couleurs...
Gros bisous
