Artichoke #3 Still Life Painting
After spending some time focusing on the outside of the artichoke, I decided to cut one in half and paint the interior. Because of the multiple layers, this painting could easily become an obsessive compulsive exercise to see how well I see and record verbatim. Instead I decided to keep it pretty loose and to push the colors some for interest. I like the effect, and I feel that this one goes very well with the other painting, Artichoke #2.
