Studying Vegetables (and Fruit)

I’m working on a bunch of paintings of vegetables grown by Angie Koch of Fertile Ground CSA. Her vegetables are always so amazing looking (and tasting), and presented so beautifully when we pick them each week through the growing season.

I started with this one: Turnip, Fennel and Kale.

I also did one of two of the three apples that grew on the tree that we planted between our house and our neighbour’s last year.

I started the daikon painting around the same time as the one of the apples. Here is the finished painting. I have posted some in-process shots in in this post.

I’ve started another painting of some squash in a crate. Here is an in-progress shot:
