The beautiful ripe artichoke is just begging to be immortalized. There are several challenges to this picture. One the green burlap cloth under the artichoke is close in color to the artichoke itself, so that could be a bit of a problem. I also want to be able to add some texture to the cloth but carefully; the artichoke needs to remain the star of the show.
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
