Another project for "Watercolor with Jean" class

This class learns fast and I needed to come up with another project for the next session.

I like to do a still life each series, so I went to the supermarket to find something delicious to paint. I found these tasty looking red radishes, with their leaves still attached. They were large and pretty sitting in bunches on the counter. I picked out a nice bunch and looked for something to go with them. I was lucky today, as the produce was lovely, and I found a beautiful head of romaine lettuce. So it looked like I was getting ready for a salad and found a nice red tomato. I needed something that was a different color and that would be fun to paint. Ah... a nice onion! I took them all home and made an arrangement to photograph. With a large class, in the space we work in, it is not possible to paint it live, so photography is my next best bet. Just as well too, since my classes have been postponed for illness (mine), and snow, lots of snow. I have long since eaten my still life.

The next thing to do was to watercolor paint it. I never give a project I haven't done myself. So yesterday, I finished my painting and was ready for today's class. Alas, you guessed it. It snowed again and is still snowing now. Classes will be postponed till April, for a bunch of other reasons.

I do want to post this painting here and then when we resume classes, I will post their paintings as well.

I really like it, actually! I love the variation in the color that gives it depth!
