Been doing some more drawing of vegetables on pattern and I just love the colours in purple artichokes and such a great winter veg. They are the most bizarre things not only in how they look, but the fact we are eating unformed thistle flowers is just weird. I look at some of the foods we eat and wonder who was the first person who thought this might be a good thing to eat. Its like olives you have to soak and brine them for weeks before they are eatable, someone must have been very hungry to go to so much trouble.
I have also included the other side of the page even though it not finished, which is the outside of the artichoke, just to make a matching pair.
I want to do a little series of winter vegetable on pattern. Larger drawing of the artichokes, the blood bean and pumpkin from earlier posts and I am just trying to see what I want to draw on. I have done this quick one of the blood bean on plywood to see if I like it better than paper. Not sure if I like it, but the already mounted ply means there is no problems with mounting it.
