Daily Painting, "Red Hot" In Progress

"Red Hot" In Progress
Oil on Gessoed Panel

As far as I got today. I bought radishes at the Farmer's Market on the weekend and they are just gorgeous. And I have intentions of painting several of them, but exhaustion set in and I landed on just one for today. I also thought I was going to paint this on a white background, but after doing an underpainting in a reddish color and then sketching out the radish, I decided to go for hot hot hot. It's more dramatic than usual and I am not sure how it will end up. Sometimes that is the way it goes...you start out with one idea and the piece develops a life of its own. Still a ways to go, but it's a start for today.
