"Artichoke" --- SOLD
The picture's not great on this one...somehow my magic picture taking spot put glare everywhere. Argh. I did my best to correct it in photoshop so it's as much like the original as possible.
There are a lot of subtley different greens in this artichoke, and I feel I really learned a lot in painting it. I learned to look carefully at the differences between colors, but also that if I look too close I get too caught up in the detail and lose it. I RE-realized I have to interpret what I see, not just reproduce.
