Three Turnips – 6" x 8" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

This little painting was a fun surprise. I took out these turnips to make a stew however when I noticed the green budding leaves on them I thought they looked so interesting I could not help myself. So I quickly set up a still life and painted them.

I do not know if I have ever completed a painting with so much purple. I really like the warms and cools in the purple colors and then the white of the vegetables had blue reflected light in it.
