Kitchen post


In a online watercolor group I am in the asked us if there was something in our kitchen that was screaming out to be painted. I had gone to the market and bought tons of fruits and vegetables, their bright colors and different smells all were screaming to be painted. But then the bag of mushrooms sitting quietly by themselves, never pushy or rude, patient and not screaming either color or strong odors. I knew that they needed to be painted. The color for June is pink and keeping that in mind I immortalized the mushrooms! Just in time, I might add, since we are going to have them for dinner! Bon Appetit

I don't even like mushrooms and these look beautiful. I love the way you used the pink and a touch of green/yellow to highlight them. They do look wonderful!
