Scrumptious Beetroot Trying New Colours

Alas no workshops to share with you all, sadly all had to be cancelled this year due to this horrid covid-19.

Back in early spring I took the opportunity to re-discover my very overgrown veg plot, with the help of my lovely hubby we made repairs the paths, raised the veg beds, and moved oodles of compost. David then went for a well earned rest whilst I planted lots of seeds.

Much later and losing battles with pigeons, cabbage white caterpillars, and don't even mention the constant army of invading slugs. lots of lovely goodies have been harvested, and enjoyed all summer long.

So what else to do with beetroot... paint it of course. I have been experimenting with some lovely new Artist Watercolours M Graham & Co. ( originally purchased at patchings farm arts festival) but you can buy them from www.jackonsart.com

How to paint a Beetroot

The paint is very rich in pigment lovely to use, and gives glorious depth of colour and flows brilliantly in the water. It uses Honey as a binder so stays soft and usable in the palette which I love. I painted these beetroot in my Khadi sketchbook, for the workshop sheet I painted on my usual Saunders 140LB Not.

So not quite the same as a workshop, but I've  done a paint along information sheet, so you can give painting veggies a go. Let me know how you get on.

Happy painting Sheila x
