Turnip Study 3 Chiaroscuro With Grapes

Last of the 3 turnip paintings. It's time to put this little fella to rest - in a salad.

I think I was able to accomplish what I was aiming for. Quiet, contemplative and a little old worldly.

Orininal Oil Painting - Turnips

Turnip Study 1, 6x6, Oil on Canvas, Click to Bid

Last week was turnip week. I'm working on that old worldly, atmospheric thing but trying to add a bit of color. Also, I wanted to try turnips in my salad. 

I have no idea what the red things are. Some artificial Christmas decor I think. They're really little bead clusters but I just wanted some red to see how that would interact with the cool lavenders and purple.

There's a little competing going on between the purple top of the turnip and the red berries but if not for that it would just be a painting of a turnip - which would have been okay but now there's a little something else to look at too.
