It has been almost a month since I first began drawing the radishes harvested from my garden. They are so appealing to draw-so bright and cheerful! But I realized that I might be in over my head starting out with a larger painting. I decided to take a step back and work on something smaller first.
The pink and red Prismacolor pencils seem to spread more than the neutral goldenrod that I usually draw with when I am planning on painting over it. Even the green seems to stay put better.
I took one of my 8×10 pieces of watercolor paper and drew just one radish to paint for practice. My first layer of watercolor is Cobalt Blue.
Then I added Cadmium Yellow to the leaves and stems. In my next installment, I will show how I layered red to create a three-dimensional veggie!
