work in progress


The "Radicco Rosso di Chiogga"  have a wonderful bitter spicy taste to eat simply as salad or grill ...delicious with  pasta and  rissotto ....here are two studies i painted last night whilst cooking ..the red leaves with the white veins are really striking .

perfectamente simplificado, enhorabuena. Saludos

Suzanne ha detto...

These are really beautiful Jane, the fluidity is magic! Amazing that you did this while cooking!

I had the great pleasure of spending a few days in Padova last week and the markets were full of radiccio tardivo - similar to this but with long curley, "medusa" like leaves. Delicious just grilled with a little oil and vinegar. You're lucky to have such inspiration on your doorstep!

jane minter ha detto...
