Beetroot

Still on the fruit and veg theme! Alizarin crimson, prussian blue and quinacridone gold all painted wet-in-wet without a preliminary sketch (scary!). Once dry, I painted the same colours into the negative spaces. The stringy bits at the top right hand corner were all done by blowing the wet paint with a straw, then spraying  clean water a small flower spray - while holding the painting upside down of course!
