If I'm going to paint vegetables or fruit (rarely together), I'll probably visit Central Market in Alamo Heights. They keep their produce in a more fresh from the farm state. As I walked around, a purple colored bunch of radishes caught my eye. I said to myself "that might make a great addition to a still life". Hours later, in my studio, I placed them next to the copper bowl and it looked a bit contrived. Instead, I picked them up and let them fall naturally. Then I placed the bowl where I wanted it.
This was taken as I was blocking in the darks and drawing out the composition.
Now I've got everything blocked in. I did my first hard edge on the bottom of the lower middle raddish.
I took this picture so I'd remember the exact name of the vegetable I bought.
