Garlic Trio



Garlic Trio

8x6in oil on canvas panel  SOLD

One garlic painted in three different positions.

Artist Note.
This was a demo. First day.
(Wait till you see what they did today)

Workshop is going great with some laughs between
the groans.

Here are some of the other garlic paintings. They had
complete freedom to paint a single one
or do what I did and move the garlic around.

  10. Hi Julie,

    I just love how you modulated warm broken color in the foreground to the cooler alizarin tones for the back ground, all set off by the cool colors in the garlic. Deliciously painted! Also I think it's always fun to see different artist's versions of the same subject. Thanks for sharing!
