Red Currants in July
They are spectacularly, eye-wateringly bitter so best freeze them or eat them with heaps of strawberries and cream. Stored in the freezer, they're a delicious winter treat - with hot melted chocolate....
Initially a wash wet-in-wet (over a sketch) of quinacridone gold, quinacridone red and turquoise and let them run into one another. Once dry, I started to work into the negative spaces and kept working at layering the tones until I could do no more.
