Vegetable Still Life (February 2017)


Watercolor pencils on coldpress.
Date: February 2017
Size: 7.5in x 5in

An initial experiment with watercolor pencils. I adore still lifes, especially involving fruit and vegetables. Fruit especially is associated with fortune and luck in Vietnam and many neighboring countries, and healthy-looking vegetables are always a sign of plenty. Fruit and vegetables are the more solid counterpart of flowers, solid and weighty as opposed to airy and delicate.
