More Radicchio

Heres the poster study and the radicchio painted in. I had to paint it over the course of two afternoons so I've been putting it in the fridge in a freezer bag. I usually take a break after work on Fridays after work but I knew that vegetable was on it's last legs so I wanted to blast it in. I've been experimenting with Cremnitz white for the grays and I'm really digging it. I laid in naples yellow over the grays for the lightest lights. The hard part was to decide how much of the "veining" to show in the shadows, because they are white after all. It took a lot of squinting down and stepping back, always a good cure for my myopia. Happy Mother's Day!
