Ok, I was desperately ignoring a certain radish post, hoping that I wouldn't have to explain that the painting, um, didn't work out so well.
Those babies were murky, dense, uncooperative as subjects, and downright obstinate when it came to posing. Luckily, they were much more suited to being stuffed between two pieces of bread and eaten for lunch. However, I did start on another version, hoping to make more sense of things and this time they became white radishes and make a little better showing, I think.
I am going to try and post it below, but that usually doesn't work, so the new painting is (probably) up above somewhere. Totally out of my control, btw.
I think it'll work this time. On the other hand I always think that.
On the third hand.... I kinda like the red radishes too. I was having such a hard time with the background, it all just started looking like a giant mud puddle. Maybe I could work a solution for the red radishes that wouldn't fall apart on me.
