Asparagus and Canning Jar

Asparagus and Canning Jar
Asparagus and Canning Jar, painting by Delilah Smith

This is number 4 in my green series,

This weeks Challenge at Daily Paint Works was paint Your Vegetables by Diane Mannion.

Pick a vegetable and paint it from life. Direct painting. Take a break from those photos for now. Not only will this be good practice but healthy too. Really look at your subject, study it closely and you'll see colors and shapes you never noticed before. Have fun with it and when you're finished... eat your subject. Then reward yourself with a good long walk. And pick something along the way for your next subject.

I picked up a bunch of asparagus or "spargrass" as my brother used to call it and placed it on a canning jar for this still life.
