Summertime is great time for finding colourful things to paint. So, with great optimism, I set went down Green Lanes to visit all the green grocers and choose something fresh and bright to paint.
It was impossible to choose – I got home with too much for one painting and all of it perishable. And so then I thought ‘where in the world would you have the privileges of such riches’, and so the painting began.
I don’t always paint in such a linear fashion. In this case it was good to be organised to capture the fruit in full bloom.
