Mushroom in watercolour

 

Hope you had a nice weekend. We spent Saturday morning at the Farmer's market. The weather was nice - sunny and warm. I had a enjoyable morning eating, people watching and shopping.  

 

Amongst other things, we bought mushrooms. When the lady was putting some mushrooms into a paperbag for me, I took a photo of her box of mushrooms.

 

I love the look of artichokes - the gradiations from purple to blue to green. I didn't buy any but I managed to get close enough for this photo.

Have a nice week.

Dear Evelyn,
Thank you for the beautiful painting and the interesting photos. If you do not mind, could you please explain how you made green dots in the background? Lovely!
Cheers, Sadami

@ Sadami:
Thanks. I used salt crystals (they are much bigger) in the same manner as salt on the background. Hope that helps.

Have a nice day, Evelyn

Is that handmade paper I see? I think so. Did you make it? It's the perfect background for a mushroom--also an artichoke--just the right amount of ruggedness. I use to make paper years ago--made my own suction vat. Is that how you got the tint and spots of color--by adding it to the slurry? Very exciting.

@ L.W.Roth:

Hi Linda, that is regular watercolour paper with washes and salt crystal for the greenish spots. I've never made paper before but I can imagine it would look great. But it would be a challenge to paint on.
