Love painting garlic...

So here is the next little painting for the 30 day paint 'everyday' challenge. As promised, I put in fewer objects. I could render more detail since the subject could be larger to fill in the space.

Yes, I love painting garlic - the round and oval shapes are just too irresistible. I also did a dramatic color rendering while using a more muted background for a change. My kitchen tile has the background blue color with the burgundy accents. BTW, my kitchen also has a lots of beige tones (walls and counter top) so these colors do not seem overwhelming in the kitchen.

I like this little painting more than expected, and fewer objects in a small painting certainly has its benefits.
